Do you mean distros maintaining a RenderTheme upstream or downstream? I don't think it will work in any case. In case of being upstream we will end up maintaining it, every time a change is made in base class it will break, etc. I prefer to keep the old code to be honest. And it would be a lot of work for downstream patches, I'm afraid.
