All code in a theme layer?

Is it possible to not use the wizard or a user layer at all and have all code entirely in a theme layer so that if you switch from one layout to another and back you won't need to change anything, just select to use the theme layer? Or should both the user layer and theme layer be saved for easy switching back to? I'm asking because I'm considering playing around with other layouts, but I want my component layout to be safe and super easy to switch back to. I know there is a way (that most find easy) to preview layouts before actually using them and I've done it before, but for some reason it struck me as a bit complicated to do. Anyway, my main reason for asking this is that I know eventually LJ will have more new layouts for all of us to play with and when that day comes I definitely want my component layout to be safe and easy to switch to.

Edited layer copy messing up...?

1) I was trying to make a component layout others could use if they wanted and for some reason the tags box is really messed up when it shouldn't be because I had copied and pasted my theme layer code to a new theme layer and just removed some extra things. See? It should look like the one currently in my journal with a scrollbar and everything. How can I fix it?

2) What CSS code do I use to change the default page background (I was using the wizard before and can't seem to find it)?

3) Also, why is the vertical alignment suddenly off on the navbar under the header image and how do I fix it?

4) How do I fix the line height on the metadata?

5) Last, but not least, why is the calendar and the links list not showing up?

I'm sorry, guys. I just don't understand why it's so different when all I did was remove a few things (nothing that should've caused anything like this, just little things I'm familiar with like the random quote component and the random image profile component).
