I ran the submit button colors (white on light blue) through a constrast 
checker [1] and found that there isn't nearly enough contrast in there.

I really think we should stick to non-themed forms. Most forms on the 
web and in UIs look like the standard OS widgets. Leaving them 
non-themed increases consistency and ability to quickly scan a page and 
figure out what is what.
