There doesn't seem to be much interest for main themes. At the Developer Summit they were used to structure the discussion a bit. At the Wikimedia Hackathon they were intended to help promoting the event among the audiences related to those areas. in Wikimania it is different, because the participants are coming to the event anyway, and the agendas are many.

Unless someone comes with convincing arguments supported by owners of potential areas, I will close this task as Declined next week.

Declining without sadness, then. I think the Wikimania Hackathon will not need these main areas to be a success. :)
