I'm hearing that there are valid reasons for maintainint multiple theme

Well, assuming the general approach taken in the patch, this (moving 
block location to the individual block config pages) does seem like the 
most promising proposal so far to improving the admin UI while 
maintaining multiple themes.  Assuming two enabled themes, on the 
block's config page it might look something like:

|              _________ _                                         |
| Bluemarine  |_________|_| [select box with Bluemarine's regions] |
|              _________ _                                         |
| Blix        |_________|_| [select box with Blix's regions]       |
|                                                                  |
| For each enabled theme, select the region you want this block to |
| appear in.                                                       |

If there is only one enabled theme, we might simplify this to:
            _________ _
Placement |_________|_| [select box with default theme's regions]
