My only concern about the limited colors is the oversaturation of the dark colors. For example, the dark blue of Skydrive would be great, but cobalt pops just too much. indigo on the other hand seems washed out. But maybe that's just the 8X's screen.
So, predefined colors would be great, if they would fit my taste more ;-)
..I'm still switching between olive, steel and cyan all the time.
What I would love though, is when Microsoft would force developers to provide a Metro-Tile for every app as a choice, using the chosen color. And to make the music/game tile the accent color.

It is open to debate whether or not that is right or wrong but it isn't really about the end user all the time.

Perhaps offering color options simply wasn't a top priority when developing a new OS and it will be included in the future.

A simple solution would be to allow a person to change the font color aswell. Launcher7 on android allowed me to change the font colors, just like the tile. Gave me a series of nice options to play with.
Also a lot of people have different tastes, I find yellow horrible, some find it pleasing. I only use 3-4 colors and feel super restricted with the colors available. I'd atleast like the option to change em .. along with the tried and tested colors :)

I change my theme color frequently to complement my lockscreen image (which changes 2x daily with Photostream), and I would like more color options, but I want more black/white/grayscale options and the more muted colors. I like all the bright primary colors but find them somewhat hard on the eyes in some cases, and tend towards the muted ones at the end of the list. Just wish there were more of them. I also like the high contrast setting but don't like having to black out my lockscreen just to get that nice crisp black/white look.
