[theme-reviewers] use of constants in textdomain

Although not technically correct to use a variable for the textdomain as
described by Mark; and as Justin noted this is a 3.3 requirement ... we may
also want to revisit this as a non-show-stopper issue.

If this is the only issue with the theme then I would expect the theme to,
for all intent and purpose, work correctly except for letter-perfect i18n
It seems if we truly want to start expediting the process to get themes
reviewed we need to revisit some of the guidelines and how they are being
interpreted ... for instance I would, given the condition there are no
significant issues otherwise, resolve this theme as approved and note the
correction should be made in the next (hopefully soon) release.

In this particular case, it would be a logical conclusion to use a variable
as the textdomain, I had come to the same idea myself prior to reading Mark
Jaquith's post on the subject.
