Comment (by knutsp):

 The admin toolbar relates to the complete admin color scheme. The front
 toolbar has to relate to the theme and be visually different. One should
 not confuse the toolbar with the theme design. The default is dark, and
 that goes well with most themes. There is no risk of color clash.

 Today you may select the admin color scheme completely independent of the
 site theme, and choose form predefined schemes available. It may come with
 a deep blue admin toolbar. On the front there may be another kind of blue,
 and those blue variants may not look good together. So I would have to
 design my own admin theme with a toolbar that matches the site theme,
 which may not look good with the rest of the admin theme, and so on. It's
 a mixup.

 In short: The aesthetics will suffer. So please leave this to a plugin.
