I think votes are valuable.  Not for seeing who likes a theme but rather 
who hates it.  Any overly stylised theme is going to polarise people 
into love it/hate it camps which should be avoided at all cost.  Ideally 
a default theme should not be even noticed by the public - being neutral 
and innofensive as possible should be the goal.  A perfect demonstration 
of this is Apple, where the current theme for OSX is crips, clean, 
stylish and probably as neutral as you can get - no loud colours, 
drastic layouts or hard edges.

This problem befell the Compiz logo effort.  I really hated the new one 
and thought the 2nd choice was a much stronger effort.  While the second 
choice did not elicit an equal poisitive response, it also did not get 
the same level of hatred as the 1st choice.
