Yeah, completeness for completeness sake is silly
anyway. But perhaps when you invoke a theme it could
call a defun that would "reset" Emacs to an
unconfigured state, in terms of faces, otherwise the
result of applying the theme is unpredictable with
respect to... at least details, in the "face" of
previous configs and themes applied.

Come to think of it, I always said themes weren't
creative but perhaps I underestimate people, this
"incompleteness feature" of themes makes it possible to
combine them...

You mean like this?

(defgroup fpscalc nil
  "The `fpscalc' mode."
  :group 'local)

(defgroup fpscalc-faces nil
  "The faces used by the `fpscalc' major mode."
  :group 'fpscalc
  :group 'faces)

(defface fpscalc-program-parts
  '((t :inherit font-lock-keyword-face :foreground "magenta" :bold t))
  "The words declarations, initialise, semaphores, and formulas."
  )
