Comment(by hnla):

 I would agree that option one - all things considered - is probably the
 best compromise, I also think that theme developers should not really have
 a problem dealing with this approach or at least they shouldn't have.

 Thing about CSS Jeff is that it is the ONLY method for dealing with the
 presentation of markup it's the great and holy grail of 'Separation of
 content from presentation' and freed us from the horrors of the tabular
 layout so in a sense this notion of graphical button from css styles are
 in effect one and the same. In some senses it's a shame that we have to
 try and tie down the application to a default theme. At risk of repeating
 what we understand ideally the mid tier should never be concerned with
 markup or presentation at the most these buttons should be returned at the
 most basic level which is the markup that is not a choice i.e the anchor
 element which must exist and with that being tokenised. Tokens I do
 believe should be part of the core it's a method of representing the basic
 applications elements I can add further ones if I believe I need them but
 work to a pre defined set that become familiar to work with. I ramble and
 fly off tangentially though.

 I think your final assessment is pretty much as good as it will get for
 the moment, and further discourse just hold things up?
