We don’t have plans to provide a Visual Studio UML express edition.
I’m going to mark this as completed so you can get your votes back – note that Matthew Johnson has released a VS 2012 color theme editor as you requested (link below) – I know it doesn’t have everything you requested in this idea, but hopefully this helps to address your feedback.

Nope. It's 10% of the solution. Do you realize how much time i waste trying to find a stinking button with this new UI? Luckily, the user community has stepped in to fill the horrible gap Microsoft has left. The combination of this theme editor with the utility at vsip.codeplex.com and the NiceVS from the Visual Studio Gallery gets us about 80% to where we NEED to be to remain productive.
Did Microsoft hire some "expert" from Cupertino to design this? Great practical joke on his part, if so.
