All that is happening here is that there is an added layer of
indirection. Instead of what you describe, we have two levels:

 the programmer: this widget is called "FOO"
 the RC file writer: style "foo" looks like this AND "FOO" uses it

Your solution doesn't get rid of the fundamental problem: how does the
RC file writer/editor know which names are important? In your scheme,
they have to know the names of the styles; in the existing scheme,
they have to know the names of the widgets, since the style names are
completely "private" to the RC file.
