Default [Request]Inverted stock .apk's

I am a very big fan of a "Holo Dark" theme to my android devices. There are a plethora of theming options for system and or user apps for aosp based roms. However the LGHome launcher is a pretty feature packed stock home launcher and utilizes all of the LG .apk's designed to be part of the stock UI. You lose this functionality with a 3rd party launcher with theming support or with a non-stock based custom Rom.

I have a collection of user apps to satisfy my desire for the "Holo Dark" look and feel, but would love to have stock LG system .apk's to match! These would include:

Messaging
Dialer and the small incoming call pop-up
Contacts
Email
Calender
Settings
***system UI theme inverted with white and Holo blue text/icons on a black or dark gradient background

I know this would be no small project, but I believe I cannot be the only user who prefers this type of look, and if the request isn't made.... well then there is nothing to gain.

Anybody can feel free to chime in here. Suggestions. Alternative .apk's or T-Mobile theme chooser options? Is it even possible or legal to modify the LG stock .apk's?

Most importantly, are there any active developers and/or themers able and willing to accomplish this?
Thanks for your consideration

Theming the things you mentioned would be nice. The bold typeface on white is a a torn on the eye, it refuses to obey the system font
I know it's possible, in Rayglobe ROM there's been some theming of the dialer and contacts app. In my opinion not for the better, though!

I'm using Rayglobe currently, not the themed version. Then flashed a theme made for version 3.x but it only themes the quicksettings colors and status bar dropdown background. Better looking than stock for sure. However, doesn't touch any .apk's

The ui for the lg gflex is based on black instead of white. Settings, dialer, etc..
Hopefully that will come or someone will cook something up based on it.

Agree. Running att g2 and the white ui backgrounds from settings, dialer, and such is killing me. Would love a black background
