@Michael -

1. The image captions are not required to be "boxed" but there is a
requirement for them to be addressed in the style.css file.

2. Once the theme is accepted into the Trac system then you are free to add
comments to the appropriate ticket; simply log in with your developer name
and post accordingly.

3. Theme Unit Test data can be discussed on the mailing-list ...

4. As Frumph already replied, the textdomain and namespace would be the
same, 'yourthemename' and 'yourthemename_' respectively.
