Not sure you got his point -- I believe Davit is referring to the
implementation of an uninstall hook for themes. He's pretty clear he'd want
that triggered on deletion, not deactivation. Basically, how it works for

We could start by removing items created using the theme_mod functions,
which I don't think most themes use, but we use it for storing metadata for
custom backgrounds and headers.
