That's a bigger change than requested by this bug.  This bug is not saying WMF
should stop using Vector, or that stock MW should.  It's just about some change
to make the WMF wikis more distinctive.

I don't think it makes sense to have the WMf and stock MW use an entirely
different skin, for similar reasons to those cited by Jared.  There should be
one leading-edge skin, which is currently Vector, for both third-party and WMF.
 That will let WMF staff and volunteers collaborate on enhancing it.

Even if the default MW skin was not Vector, people could still use Vector as
long as they didn't use specific WMF trademarks (e.g. Wikipedia globe, or any
custom non-stock color scheme adopted).  That's part of open source software.
