We have a package for community themes which will be included in Intrepid.

The reason that not all mockups are turned into themes is a) interest of 
people who know how to code it and b) reality - just drawing a new widget 
will not make someone change the existing ones

We are slowly improving on the process. Trust me, it has gotten better over 
the last year or more.
