FWIW I’d say Solarized Dark is far tamer than the light version, and it
sometimes feels like the light version was never intended seriously by
the colourscheme’s original creator.

That’s why I think fiddling with defaults is kinda missing the point.
We all have what our minds want and bodies need, and the colours of a
program we’ll use a lot, if configurable, is one of the first things
we’ll adjust.  When I watch coding videos for example, I rarely see
people sticking to even VS Code’s or Sublime Text’s default
colourschemes, which are dark and ‘trendy’.  So it might not be worth
the breakage.
