It's in there for accessibility reasons-- now that the panel is keyboard
navigable, there needs to be a way to show when it was focused, and the
prelight colour was chosen as it was deemed the least garish option that
was still noticeable and consistent with the rest of the theme.  So, at
least if you don't like it, there's an easy fix-- choose a theme with a
different prelight colour :)
