The mockups lock nice, but this won't work.

Dark toolbars with bright text combined with bright window-content with 
dark text won't work together because it is not possible with non-
native-gtk applications (like Firefox and OpenOffice). Sure, one could 
modify the userChrome.css for Firefox but there is no workaround for 
OpenOffice and others.
