Me, me! *ahem* Seriously, tho', Selenium is one of my core tools. I think it would be a great addition to the toolset. Not to mention I've been writing up materials looking at the theme check plugins as a theme development environment anyway. Send me email?

By a given test unit data (as is the case for the theme review) it is probably possible to record the whole process navigating through the menu items, posts and pages one by one. This could be done in a series of tests due to few differences between the themes and different components such as menu changed and so on (though this could also be automated).
