/etc/grub.d/* are configuration files too. They can be changed by
user as he sees fit. /etc/default/grub lists only the most common
and useful options. Everything else would only encumber it. If
there is enough demand for your feature this point of view may
change though

While there is some theme support in grub-mkconfig.in and 00_header.in, there is no support for adding or configuring simple menu color entries which are used in text mode grub.

Currently Linux distributions that do not use themeing have to implement a 05_theme entry like Debian and Arch Linux, due to the lack of support in the main scripts.

The patch I submitted adds that support.
