First, why not simply let the user decide about the color theme? Is 
hardcoding colors a new trend?

Second, style sheets _are_ a workaround. They are not meant to create 
a custom style. Subclass QStyle instead, if you want to do your own 

And last, do not expect changes in Qt5 regarding style sheets.
