Speaking for myself here - I'd consider it *helpful* to get
direction on those details. For me, it's not telling me how to code,
but what to put into all those magic constant values needed for UI -
I'd otherwise would need to trial-and-error those out, which is
non-fun (for me).

Besides, at least those bike-shed-color issues, are usually
trivially fixable after-the-fact ... ;)
