That is impossible in principle.  Any mode (or elisp code) can define a new 
face with new colors that didn't even exist when the theme was designed.  
Distant-foreground gives theme designers a way to cope with this, even if no 
theme has done so yet.  And in a way that is consistent with other theme 
colors.  Dark/light just don't do that.  EOD.
