That's the same excuse everyone uses for not using the global scheme.  It 
always has been and still is lame.

Either an XGM or a greyscale SVG for each of {NeutralBackground, 
AlternateBackground, Normal, Inactive, Active, Link, Visited, Negative, 
NeutralText, Positive, Focus, Hover} and composite them at runtime, then 
apply a final XGM or greyscale SVG as alpha channel.

You have loads of flexibility while remaining within the parameters 
established by the chosen scheme.
