Hmm...this may be a bug in Launchpad - when I try to update my theme (to the
new ubuntunew theme) I get an error stating:
Invalid user name 'https://login.launchpad.net/+id/QCAQfkn'. Name may
contain any Unicode alpha numeric character, with optional one space between
words. Group page name is not allowed.

I like the new theme. Nice and clean! (spoken as a co-designer of the
original theme ;) )
I think it's appropriate to go with a fixed-width theme for the
documentation site because content here is meant to be read as a page.
The wiki formating should be adjusted to generally work at this width.
Consistency with ubuntu.com is also a plus!
On the development wiki OTOH we do have a lot of content that would
benefit from a fluid layout, incl. large tables, code fragments and
theme shots. For that wiki I would suggest a derivative of this theme
that is even more minimalistic WRT layout so that it can flow and load
faster (basically remove the bitmapped frames and just use a large white
page with an edit bar at the bottom).
