I don't think this merits argument because it's just a preference of
the theme designer. If a theme designer wanted to make variations of a
theme by redefining its colors, they should be free to do so. As I
said, it's not uncommon to see the same theme released in different
colors, like dark_world-green, dark_world-orange, dark_world-red, that
kind of thing. That would most easily be done with one CSS and three
sets of color settings.
I agree a theme should "just work", as distributed. As long as it
does, I don't think it matters too much how it's implemented, although
some themes may be much easier for users to tweak via settings than
others. If a user can't tweak a theme the way they want, they'll look
for another theme.

seems like a good idea

seems like an unnecessary restriction
