[theme-reviewers] Draft Theme Development Checklist

Well, first: I left it there, because it is in the current version of the 
Theme Development Checklist.

But, I believe the reasoning is that such files are intended for private 
themes (or private/individual modification of themes), not publicly 
distributed themes - that the author would have no idea what "foobar" any 
given user would need/want, so such files would needlessly clutter the theme.

(For example: in the private version of my theme, I have a file called page-
missions.php, with corresponding sidebar-left-missions.php and sidebar-right-
missions.php. The public version of my theme has none of these files, because 
they are specific to my use of the theme.)

Joseph et al, any further clarification?
