Currently, no workaround. I'll look into improvements.

However, if you are distributing themes outside of .org, I'd recommend
using something like this:

This essentially is a library to let you override theme update checks
for your theme and to check from your own site instead. It works
pretty effectively. Getting updates to your users is a problem any
theme dev should consider.
