[theme-reviewers] Proposed WordPress 3.3 Theme Review Guidelines Revisions

I have a question regarding one of the items on the list:
Themes are REQUIRED to use a string, rather than a variable, constant, or concatenation, as the textdomain in translation functions.
Why should this be required? By using a variable someone can very easily change the text domain as needed wether it be for a child or derivative theme. I really don't see the reasoning behind this one, so could someone please enlighten me?
