I think I understand your request and issue and I sympathize (see
below for some concrete suggestions). I think you've just used a
"FOSS-style system": convince people that can help with the current
problem to help you. When you say "more inclusive", how do you mean?

I think if somebody tried that, they'd get criticised for telling the
deployments what they could have :). I don't say it's a bad idea -

To change some colors, edit /usr/share/themes/sugar-72/gtk-2.0/gtkrc.
You can edit the entries in the file, then start a new activity to
test your changes.
The entries you might like to edit include:
fg[NORMAL] = "#000000" #### affects the text color
fg[ACTIVE] = "#000000" #### affects the text color
color["bg_color"] = "#FFFF00" #### affects the background color
fg[NORMAL] = "#FF0000" #### affects color of text
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#00FF00" #### affects color of text
fg[ACTIVE] = "#00FF00" #### affects color of text
base[NORMAL] = "#FF0000" #### affects background of text input
text[NORMAL] = "#00FF00" #### affects text color of text input
The documentation includes:
