 From what I understood most of them only change minor bits just like
your suggestion. Otherwise I agree with you, they won't be pratcial to
adopt. E.g. I started with getting Kalle's propsal to work on

 It is an interesting approach and looks sweet, though there are some
things that itch me a bit: The blue text and the red headlines are a bit
too much, and personally I dislike dotted links instead of clearly

 These are my first impressions though.

 See Kalle's proposal, it doesn't have too deep changes and it comes
with a patch that makes it clear what needs to get changed (and is
already changed on the above site).
