Demian added a comment to T112747: Devise a generic way for theme-agnostic stylesheets to adapt to the current theme.

Food for thought:
Theming that's done in LESS cannot be hot-swapped client-side.

  • Different color themes for skins are not practical to be swapped server-side. That would result in multiplied cache requirements and a full stylesheet reload when switching themes.
  • Only CSS that concerns branding, logo, website-specific style elements are practical to be placed into a server-side "theme". That would benefit mostly non-WMF operators of MediaWiki instances, though.
