Too vague. Though *I* can work with it you still run the rick of people
doing alot work that that Mark doesn't like. That has been the history
of Ubuntu art and is quite disheartening to alot of people.

Clear guidelines can also get people on board IMO.

In the end the only way this really gets done is a small group of
talented people working with Ken that don't care about the wider
communities opinions. Come up with a vision/guidelines and go for it.

Ubuntu Studio has a evolved theme for 8.10 in the works. Still very
familiar. Still dark. ;)
