Doesn't this seem reasonable?

In any case, to produce your "standardized screenshot theme", you're
talking about developing identical/closely similar themes for Mac,
Windows and various Linux GUIs (Gnome, KDE, ...). Is this really a
priority? And *why* do all screenshots have to look exactly the same?
What's wrong with variety? It seems to me that as long as reasonable
advice is followed, such as given in the docs team's contributor's
guide, there is no really useful purpose served by making LibreOffice
always wear the same identical green uniform. Color and variety are
the spice of life, and absolutely in keeping with Open Source ethos.

Not sure if you read this but maybe you should take some time. Bernhard has summed up all of the reasons that were proposed on uniformization on this discussion thread in a recent post. Just in case you missed it, you may find it here: I think he has put it all very eloquently and as plain as possible. I think the reasons for writing up protocols are overwhelming.

Hope this help clarifying this.
