Lets try setting some goals here:

* It must be a good theme technically.
   - Work in the browsers we say Drupal works in (it is somewhere in the 
   - Be tableless, because tables are for storing tabular data, not 
visual layout.
   - Not override more themeable functions than we already do.
   - Have good code style.
* It must look good.
* It must be customizable.
   - By people who are never going to touch the CSS. The theme 
configuration options need to work and produce good results.
   - And by people who will touch the CSS.
* It must improve the Drupal brand. This is the first thing people see.

This is just a quick list, so feel free to tell us what needs to be changed.
