The "Z-Man" has it backwards. If the user goes out of their way to set a custom background color the site should respect that, the same as with user selected fonts and css and whether images are shown and whether javascript is enabled and whether Flash and Java are available, etc. etc. and so on.

Jeffrey Zeldman wrote[1] on his blog about "underwear showing" on many sites. In short, not specifying background colour might get you into an awkward situation if a user has some predefined background color in his browser. And Radiant is a bit showing-off in this sense.
