Yes, hard coding colours, fonts, sizes or styles leads to accessibility and 
usability problems. The upcoming HIG will contain clear guidelines for this.

All existing instances of such hard coding need to be removed for KDE4. The 
idea is to extend the colour schemes and to provide new convenience widgets 
for application appearance configuration to help enforce this.

If you need an additional colour role, then please tell me what exactly you 
need and I will add it to my list.
