[theme-reviewers] New Ticket Resolution

If a ticket requires a special resolution as a pointer for
"approved-with-next-revision-fixes" then perhaps the ticket should be
immediately re-reviewed for those concerns.

IMO, if they are relevant enough to stop future versions of the theme from
being approved if not addressed, they are relevant enough to stop the ticket
at hand from being approved.
