Isn't what you describe just ordinary Emacs usage?  I mean we use Emacs, we grow out of default features and turn off/on stuff after hand as our knowledge and skills ?

By the way, why would anyone turn off features and then recreate them in their init file? It seems like very convoluted use case to me.

It's the use of the theme (or mode) that's expected to be "grown out
of". As the user progresses they'll discover they like this, but they
don't like that, and now they have to make the choice of whether to
disable the theme and just enable the features they want in their
init.el, or enable the theme and try to disable the features they
don't want in their init.el. I think the latter option is less
desirable and probably harder to achieve.

Perhaps the theme should come with documentation explaining what you
need to add to your init.el to achieve the same effects.
