Perhaps, but not everyone is a css junky.  Many want the ease of use
of a typical plugin.  I have in the past done exactly what you've
suggested, and it works well.

I wanted a plugin that used the theme of the existing site, would work
for most people, and it wasn't a lot of work anyway.  Plus, if people
want to style it they can.
