I don't think that should matter. If the theme developer doesn't want
their end-users having to have a custom header link in their theme,
they shouldn't have to IMO.

I made a site for someone last night for example, and changed the
header image for them. There's no way I would have chosen a theme
which had a customisable header image as that would have required me
having to go in and mess around ripping stuff out of the theme. It's a
pain in the neck and a time sink just to do something simple like
remove an image when all I needed to do in the theme I chose was to
change a single image.

By forcing inane requirements on people you are stifling innovation
and making it awkward to create the themes people want. Best to let
theme developers create the theme they intended for their end-users,
not the one that fits a rigid set of arbitrary rules.
