I use this theme (http://killhellokitty.deviantart.com/art/Dorian-theme-3-10-416353853) few years for every PC that I have and rarely I need to switch to the light theme because of something not readable (for example numbers of current time in Audacity). But also we can run some program with light theme only for this program - benefits much more than problems. And yes, will be better to include to the Ubuntu not only dark but some gray theme too.
