It seems like the right thing, too. I don't think a general vote on the
default theme is a reasonable idea at all. 

Taste is not something that can be decided with simple majority. Voting
for the default theme would pretty much devolve into 'which is the
coolest looking background when glancing at a bunch of screenshots',
which is not at all what a good default theme is about.

This forum is the place for qualified and interested people to work on
the art that makes up the default theme. It should also be the place
where the default theme gets put together. 

If you want to gain more feedback on the drafts you work on, here is a
proposal: next time, package up the remaining candidates in the final
round (at that stage they should all be complete enough for that, I
guess), and ship them with the beta, maybe with some nice paragraph in
the beta release notes pointing at the available candidate themes.
