Interesting conundrum here. If the uploader actually did prevent bad
code getting through (assume it's magically perfect and checks for all
required stuff as well as preventing all bad stuff getting through),
then that actually increases the workload on the reviewers. Why?
Because now there's no longer any obvious things for a reviewer to
check for to bounce themes back quickly. Theme authors getting
rejected by the theme uploader are more likely to fix their themes and
try again. So every theme making it through would have to be fully
checked, as all requirements would be met. ;-)
