- my point is that if the theme preferences where still... under the preferences menu, AND it had the functionality of being able to change the brightness and contrast of elements...

..... then maybe there wouldn't be so much gravitas surrounding "it's too dark" "I can't see it" "it's illegible" etc..

That's all.
We missed your point because you said:

Cleary, it wasn't taken away. It was moved. Not sure why, but I don't consider an "action" to be hidden any more than a "preference".

Not only that, but *I* don't want to have to jump through that hoop, either.
Not sure why you consider it a "hoop". Preferences need to be chosen by first going to the preference window and finding the section you want to work in. An "action" can be in any menu or have a keystroke assigned to it. I would argue that all preferences should have actions assigned to them because it's quicker.

Is it harder to find for new users? Probably. But one could also argue that new users shouldn't be adjusting the theme right away either.
