I very much agree with this point. For these discussions to be
productive, we should try to reach a compromise, if possible, and work
in small steps. The idea of offering a light/dark alternative theme
prominently from the splash screen is worth considering.

Recently, modus-operandi-theme[1] and modus-vivendi-theme[2] have been
included in core Emacs. They are two light/dark themes that offer good
accessibility and broad face coverage for internal and external
packages. I'm not suggesting we should offer those exact themes, that
was just an example; maybe we can poll users/developers about what's
their favorite FSF-copyrighted theme.
