The idea is that the White/black/grey/simple theme should really style 
ALL languages.

So I'd say yes, delete the LaTeX theme. In a few betas there will be a 
per language possibility to have a settings file, but that should be 
for non-visual settings (like these inc/dec patterns and related, i.e. 
what's currently placed in the Basic settings).

If something looks wrong in a LaTeX file using one of the generic 
themes, either (prioritized) 1) the names used in the language 
definition should be changed, 2) the naming scheme should be revised to 
allow for generic themes, or (last option) 3) an add-on should be 
created for that language (like e.g. the Diff colors, which do not set 
foreground/background etc., but only the new elements defined in the 
Diff language file).
