Perlmonks is much more than the "visible parts".
This wouldn't be the default theme, but a good start to develop one (it still has several issues, like breaking other JS code° and we need backwards compatibility for (browser-)static HTML)
IMHO this theme should include a hook such that everyone could inject his own JS code from his Display Settings - like it's possible to inject one's own CSS - to allow further evolution.
(PMdev's can neither create or fork code-nodes, they can only provide patches to existing nodes and hope the gods accept them. And they don't have access to all the code. To further complicate things they can't test patches in a sandbox.)

Honestly I doubt you are really interested in the gory details of the monasteries engine, since you didn't care to figured out yet how to set a proper link.*
Otherwise I could link to some documentation ...
°) there is a long traditional reluctance against complicating the code-base with JS. And PMDevs are Perl experts, not designers excelling in CSS. The solution would be to decouple these domains.
