Ultimately, this will always be the implementer's decision. Not anyone's
in this team.

Additionally,
1) There is no chance get the majority of [people/users of LibreOffice/
..?] to express an opinion on this matter.
2) Do we actually need everyone's opinion? Or would it make more sense
to find arguments one way or another?

Solving this is best done via Bugzilla with arguments, not via a poll
that will only give skewed, reason-free output anyway.

Reasoning on design matters is not (yet?) as clear cut as in
mathematics, true. Still, it should be more than people expressing
random whims.

Setting a colour that is too light makes LibreOffice less usable to a
large class of users. That is what I meant here, mostly.

But, of course, you are hinting at it... options come at a price. They
increase the complexity of the user interface, they need to be kept
working etc.
The Appearance page of the LibreOffice options in particular is already
a graveyard for far too many borderline useless options.


> you gave your 3 aims only after I set the dudle.

Fair point. Should have done that earlier.
