[ubuntu-art] Where's the official proposed theme idea?

To be honest I am not particularly keen on the current incarnation of 
the offical theme so far.  I find most of the themes based on brown to 
overly dark - although this may be more personal preference.  I like 
light, bright themes and find the trend of brown on brown a bit 
claustraphobic at times.  The themes buttons are also a bit too similar 
in design to Vista for comfort.

Putting my money where my mouth is I have created a mockup for a brown 
based theme that still keeps the spirit of Ubuntu (I hope) but uses 
large amounts of contrasting and light colours.  It's just 
quick-and-dirty and lacks the majority of the required controls, but 
hopefully it'll demonstrate what I mean.
