I would suggest asking specific questions in the ticket, regarding the
specific issues you're having difficulties addressing/implementing. I've
CCed myself on the ticket, so I'll see any questions you ask there.

Actually, yes it does. TwentyTen uses the Post timestamp as a Permalink.

Besides, "but Theme X does/doesnt..." is not a valid argument. Even if
TwentyTen (or soon, TwentyEleven) didn't meet some Guideline, the Theme
Review Team has no direct control over that.
