It is actually listed in the Theme
"TwentyTen". I'm not sure of its history...

Regardless, it's really something we have no control over. I'll be curious
to see how things change when/if Theme Devs get direct SVN-commit access
like what Plugin Devs have.

Something we'll certainly keep in mind, for if/when we get input on future
"Default" Themes (whether we get such input is anyone's guess, but I at
least *hope* that we do!).
