the reason we would not change at gedit level is that the classic theme from gedit which is the shipped by default follows the theme (Adwaita) colors,

Unless Adwaita was built around the colors of the classic theme in gtksourceview, this is not the case. The "classic.xml" colour theme predates GTK3 -- the colour pallette has been the same since before gtksourceview 2.91 was released [1], [2].

making it more approapiate since it follows better the colors from the desktop while solarized or any of the others it doesn't.
The solarized palette is a lot softer, and complements the adwaita theme much better than the default classic theme. Here are some screenshots comparing the two styles [3], [4].

I recently blogged on the Fedora Magazine about the awesome addition of the Solarized colour schemes in GEdit and GNOME-terminal in workstation [1].  And a commenter on that post asked the question: why not make it default?

Since terminal ships with the dark GTK theme turned on, we could set the default color scheme there to Solarized Dark, and for gedit (that uses the light GTK theme by default), enable Solarized Light by default.
