I agree that all the forms should be "themeable".  That's why I
created the plugin located at
which allows the user to include the login, registration, and forgot
password forms into their themes and includes the ability to set up
custom redirects.

Note that this is not a hack, I detest hacks causing me to have to keep
track of files changed.  This plugin overrides the forms completely
while using 99% of the core code within the plugin to reduce the
amount of security testing I had to do.

I intend to write this functionality into the trunk for consideration
at some point in the near future through the hook system; I just
wanted to let the dust settle on the latest changes first.
