Well, some applications of Drupal wouls still need a bluemarine-like 
theme (as you pointed out boxes and arrows, they still use this color 
scheme and layout). The Sands (and Sands_CSS) themes pointed out earlier 
are following the blumarine root, and the "holygrail" theme in contrib is 
an exact copy of bluemarine without tables for layout. So bluemarine is 
not going to be forgotten, neither it should be.
