I doubt there will be a conclusive decision about theme support in "a

I appreciate the desire to be decisive about the documentation, but that is
largely dependent on being decisive about the code, and so there needs to
be a "no additional investment"/"maintenance mode" for the docs the same
way that there is for our code.
