I know it doesn't. That's why people need to put together docs... so people, like me, can easily go in and add the polish to the interface with minimal fuss.

At the moment, it's increadably hard to do even the simplest things because XUL and the JavaScript behind it is more complex than you'd first think.

Um, a theme is just different pictures. When I loaded it up it looked fine. If you want a new chrome, well that's a different story. That will probably take a while. When Mozilla 1.0 comes out, you might see one or two alternate interfaces start popping up. But probably not before moz is properly documented.
