We use different gradients for a reason, each element has its own
design requirements. Plastering the same gradient everywhere would
look horrible and I'd be strongly opposed to it.
As for the colors, they _are_ meant to go well with each other. If you
think we failed this attempt, then please be more specific and ideally
make some suggestions. But there is no reason to use only one shade of
color from the Ubuntu palette.
