Putting forward a *no* backward compatibility requirement is a bit much;
but, requiring submitted themes to support the current stable release
version of WordPress (if not clearly written it will be added to the
guidelines) is absolutely implied by inference of all the other guideline

See this section of the Theme Review page:

So, essentially, there is no real need to have backward compatibility
included with any theme submitted to the repository; and, if the upload
"theme-check" trips up on one of these deprecated functions, even if wrapped
in some sort of conditional statement; and, throws out errors (and
potentially "Fail" a submission), that will be at the Theme authors hands to
