The only theme that meets that, IMO is box_grey. But I doubt that that one 
will be considered core worthy by the Great Designer Eyeballs. 

In the mean time, I am still working on whatsinitsname, a base theme, but that 
is very-non-core. :)


I have built three sites with that now, and must say that its basis stands 
very well trough the three theme-designs. I'd encourage all people in need of 
a solid, consistent, CSS based, framework, to have a look at it, and send me 
feedback. Maybe it'll grow popular enough to become core-worthy one day. 
Once I feel the XHTML, classes and IDs are consistent and solid enough, I will 
release it, but to get there, I need testers. The proof of the pudding is in 
the eating, after all.

In the mean time, I'd say not to bother too much about developer-worthy core 
themes ;). No serious developer and designer will or sould consider using 
them , IMNSHU. Would you really offer your client a site that looks/feels 
exactly like >9000 other sites on the web?
