Well, Troy this can be a start. To create a responsible team to keep a 
rhythm, to have some public places, a team which can start writing 
specifications and guidelines for what can be a  great thing.

-> about the default theme - this community move around the Earth 
because a new brand look is really needed. And is better to come from 
inside, like $MS or Sun. This is the big point I supposed.

Finally, why not "default theme"- I see some peoples here with talent 
and determination, the only missing thing is a well tempered workgroup 
(like Inkscape and Gimp already has). Also Mark will be glad to see this 
job by the Ubuntu community. And maybe, on the road, we can try to 
implement some new features, maybe a new theming engine.

About your proposals all 3 points are pertinent.
