Well put it this way ... custom-background is a convience.. that's all, just like custom-header.

While post-thumbnails are a 'feature', if considered as such then I would say yeah it should be required, but if I consider it an 'addon' then I would say optional.

  Just as an observation regarding custom backgrounds: I have yet to review a Theme that *couldn't* incorporate custom background support.

  Custom headers are certainly another matter (I'm not such a big fan of big header images, anyway).

  But, I think Post Thumbnail support *should* be required, in any case. That was one of the most major features of that release (very much like Nav Menus in 3.0).
