In short: no.

In long(ish):

* If a program hangs, the user cannot close the window
* each program needs a copy of the theme parsed in memory, the images
created in memory
* theme caches (what little there are) are cached per app, rather than
per theme.
* windows don't all look/behave the same (I know this is one of your
plus points, but in my eyes this is a large negative)
* each program is linked to the metacity library...we're trying to
reduce library count for each program, not increase them.
