I really can't understand this point. The fact that Blueprint looks ugly by default and lacks components doesn't make it a better choice. Both Bootstrap and Foundation are modular and fully customizable.
Bootstrap and Foundation: Premade cookie-cutter website and styles. To make it unique, you have to hack away at it. This is 100% against Yii's philosophy.
Blueprint: Grid framework, no other styling other than a CSS reset
Ugly styles are the entire point
of something like Blueprint. That way you get to build up from it, making a completely unique application. Boostrap and Foundation are monsters. Have you ever tried to make a completely unique looking website using them (and I'm not just saying changing colors)? They are great for what they are, but are absolutely out of the question for people working with unique designs created before
rAWTAZ has the right idea, it is exactly what Yii should be providing and would be the most useful the most amount of developers. Some basic, responsive CSS.
ekerazha, you are going to have a hard time convincing everyone that Bootstrap or Foundation is minimal when Bootstrap alone runs off a 6,000 line CSS file and 2,000 line JS file. You can turn of features to make it minimal in the frontend, but what runs in the background is anything but.
