I've been presented with a problem where a group wants their own Confluence instance because they want to restrict folks to looking at mostly the space content and not the rest of confluence. But they also like the documentation theme...I'm attempting to obscure the breadcrumbs, Browse, Login and Search top bar in an attempt to force folks into specific behavior.
Another option would be to have it only avaliable to another specific group.

You can show this top navigation bar to only a specific group in Confluence. Refer to this documentation for more info: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+Display+Different+Appearance+for+Different+Users+Using+Confluence+Layouts
