One particular type of scheme that's missing is everything as a
completely colourless monochrome.  If you work with photography, or
video production, you need a neutral reference.  Coloured backgrounds
throw your judgement out, and you start to tweak pictures in the wrong
way, to compensate.

Whilst it's easy for me to replace a background, it's much harder to do
the same with other GUI decorations (being very time-consuming, or
impossible to figure out how, or perhaps not being possible, at all).

You get a similar problem for astronomy people.  Who, typically, want a
red screen, and put a coloured filter over their laptop as a simple
solution.  Unfortunately, that makes some GUI's difficult to use, as two
or more, normally, contrasting colours used next to each other both turn
black.  A grey-shaded theme would work for them too, with their red
filter.  Or, an entirely pre-tinted theme.
