+1 on this. There should be fair warning otherwise there's going to be an
avalanche of complaints.

Btw, can theme reviewers post such upgrade reminders in closed tickets just

I don't see why not. As I understand it, the theme author continues to
receive emails on comments on a ticket even if it is closed.

In addition to this, should reviewers perform a theme check on obsolete
themes  just so it's clear what the issues are?
