[theme-reviewers] Is WP_DEBUG really important, or is it just to take the load of ?

We only review Themes. We don't review Plugins. We have absolutely NO
control over anything that happens in the Plugin Repository.

(For that matter, we have absolutely NO control over Themes already in the
Theme Repository. We only deal with Themes being submitted, as updated or
new, to the Theme Repository.)

Why do you say that not allowing PHP errors and Deprecated Function Calls
makes no sense? To the contrary: what sense does it make not to fix those
