Why no Vita themes available?

I'm very surprised that Vita owners can't purchase custom Vita themes. Each game should ship with a theme included which would give you custom backgrounds, music and sound effects for the system.

I doubt the OS / UI currently supports such thing as custom icons / music / sounds. You can change the background picture though~.

Aside from the background what would change?

Really, the best the Vita can do is have an image with transparency as the background, so you'll see a stock color behind the background image, like so:2013-04-14-163916.jpg

As far as we know, that's what's possible today. I think it's a huge missed revenue opportunity for Sony and it's business partners not doing so.

Keep commenting to get some attention. It would be great to have a collectors edition Vita game come with a custom theme that included custom backgrounds and UI sound effects.

How about animated unlock screens?
How about custom UI music based on your favorite game?
How about opting in for a random theme to install ITSELF every night during my daily system backup?
