On second thought... those should use AlertText. So, short of having a 
decoration role for every text role, I think I change my mind that we 
need to add anything. Unless someone can make a strong case why 
NegativeText and/or AlertText (and/or any other of the Text roles) can't 
do double-duty for decorations in most cases?

I'm still somewhat on the fence, though...
