I have to agree with the "noisy design" part.
These themes look fine for _some_ site, I guess I
wouldn't mind bumping into one of them while browsing,
but I think they're visually too "involved" to fit
for _the default drupal theme_. This can't represent
the drupal brand.

Someone (Drumm as well ?) mentioned the "plainness" of Kubrick
WP theme. I think we have to stick to that.

Now, maybe this is only a matter of CSS ?
