[theme-reviewers] Category templates not allowed? Not acceptable.

My themes have a custom gallery functionality that do not use a category, it 
uses wordpresses [gallery] code and the image.php file, which can also be 
done with attachment.php

I'm sure this might be an oversite on your side to recognize that.
