[wp-hackers] Themes not all they should be?

Forgive me if this has come up before. I just started my transition to
WP 1.5, and I was all excited about themes, until I realized that they
were just packaged, pluggable versions of the old wordpress layout
ideology. Snap in a layout, switch to another one, etc. Instead, I was
hoping that what "themes" meant was an extendable set of data-regions
stored centrally that then filtered through the "view" of different
themes. For example, say I want a sidebar, links, categories, posts,
asides, and a custom region called "my-picture-of-the-day." Then, I had
imagined that all themes would then render my data regions as appropriate.
Obviously this is not the behavior of 1.5, but is this model worth
