Well, not necessarily a decision to spite those who do use them, but
speaking for Graphite, I don't, so I didn't.

None of them are.  All of the "legacy" themes are a menu only.  Every
other screen falls back to "default" (for 4:3 themes) and default-wide
(for 16:9 themes).  The default themes are not usable themes unto
themselves, but exist as "emergency fallbacks" when the theme does not
have a given screen themed.  In the case of all the legacy themes,
this is every screen except the menu.
