    8 From my POV, the horrible contrast disaster in the default admin menu '''IS''' a cause of going all out for "visual appealing". Ie. utter graphic design aspects over usability.
    9 And it '''IS''' a wide-spread approach. Maybe mislead because of lacking education, but as long as nobody complains and says something against it, including constructive critique, NOTHING will change.

    11 Middle blue on a grayish background is mediocre readable, even for "non-handicapped" persons. The blue color clearly derives from the overall color scheme (mostly the buttons), but could have been easily improved by using #030303 as background hover / focus color and cranking the color intensity (gcolor2 calls it "Value") up to 100%. It'd still not be as good as using the straight white-black contrast, but a step in the right direction. And would still have been uniform, out of one cast, with the rest of the scheme styles.

    13 But: Didn't happen. So of corpse my speculation would be - mere visual appeal and continuity over usability and accessibility. Or a simple ignorance of these (in the original meaning of the word; lt. ignorare - to not know, to be not acquainted with).
