Here are two interesting proposals and posts on the future of WordPress themes based on what we've seen from Gutenberg so far:

Rich Tabor updated his post on the future of themes and notes “the definitive end of WordPress themes as we know them today is coming.” Rich thinks that might be a good thing.

Mike Schinkel has a “modest proposal.” What if, “starting with [WordPress] version 6.0 maybe — the WordPress team chose to actually deprecate themes?” What if themes were replaced with modules and components as “first-class extensions?” 🤔
