Yeah. I need some way to easily distinguish the (7 and counting) Drupal sites I 
maintain. For me that was one of the advantages of integrating admin in the 
first place.

And yet I do recognize the need to allow for wide tables of the admin section in 
the theme. In essence I want the admin sections to maintain the look and feel of 
the site but have different layout - to me that isn't a different theme, 
although from a technical perspective that is one way to achieve such separation.

Flexibility is indeed the key.

It seems that way but I'd rather see section specific layout logic than a whole 
separate theme.
