No, it is not. It lacks unified framework to use as logicla names for
color use; someting similar to what you have in <h1>, <h2>, ... <h8> in
html, just as example. Instead people use rgb values directly in their
packages, and when user changes a theme, packages does not follow. So
theme engine in Emacs needs a little additional work.

I understand your sentiment, but then, you could say this for any
feature, inclusive fido-mode or icomplete or even find-file.

Just as an illustration one could argue that "simpler" open-file as
found in other software packages is what "casual" users would expext.
Personally I would like to see ffap being enabled as default ...
