[drupal-devel] advanced theme in core vs all in core.

Recently two issues, namely online/offline icons [1]  and several Ajax issues 
(with konqueror mainly) made me think that we need to give more power to the 
themes and put less cruft in core.

José A Reyero came with that exact same idea [2], which is why I think we 
should get this idea on the ML.

I would like to see one theme in core that does and has it all: AJAX, avatars, 
icons for user statii, icons in the admin areas, advanced menu styles, and 
whatever more you can think of. 
Currently we all "enforce" these things onto all Drupal sites, while in fact 
we could (and should IMHO) ship a lightweighted drupal. Yet show the power of 
Drupal  in a full featured theme. 

What do you ppl think? put AJAX in one core theme? Add the online offline 
icons there? Add more features to a theme?
