Umm.... Either OOo (mozilla, blender, evolution, crackfactory, ...) picks
up the theme change or it doesn't - and there is nothing you can really do
in the theme capplet if it doesn't (including if it is a sufficently old
version that is not awar of theconcept of theme changes).

Yes, so you need an Xdesktop way of communicating about the "theme name"
change, similarily to the doubleclick etc values & colours. And hope that
the gtk+ pinpall theme actually matches the mozilla pinpall theme and so
