The theme review documentation at 
<http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review> states:

"Theme must include the following variables and functions in functions.php:

     * $content_width
     * add_theme_support('menus’) "

The Codex page 

conversely states:
"This function automatically registers custom menu support for the theme 
therefore you do not need to call add_theme_support( 'menus' );"

Yet I am having themes rejected because I am using register_nav_menu and 
therefore am *not* incorporating add_theme_support('menus’).

Themes are also being rejected for failure to use $content_width in 
favour of:

if ( !function_exists( 'theme_content_width' ) ) :
function theme_content_width() {
	$GLOBALS['content_width'] = 900;

*plus* multiple CSS max-width declarations on both containers and 
specific elements (eg img & object).

I'm even getting comments about spelling licence in a filename with a 
'c' instead of an 's' (the former being the correct UK spelling)!

I have about 8 themes in the Directory that I'm pretty desperate to 
update with bug fixes but I'm being constantly knocked back. I'm all for 
standardisation and quality but come on, guys... this is getting silly.
