[theme-reviewers] How much should I weigh looks, scalability, and functionality?

I'm reviewing a theme called zeeReputation 
(http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3268). It has no PHP errors, no 
HTML/CSS validation errors, it passes all the Theme Checker tests, and 
it calls no deprecated functions.

However, it doesn't really adjust well to the different theme variables. 
For example, if the site title is relatively long, it wraps to the next 
line and covers up some links. Also, if I have a lot of categories, only 
the first 4 show up in the primary navigation menu.

My question is this: are issues like these ground for rejecting a 
submission, or should I focus primarily on preventing errors and the like?
