Assuming overriding the JavaScript is allowed...

Rather than re-registering and enqueuing in one step you could call
wp_register_script() (just replace your current call to
wp_enqueue_script with that leaving the arguments the same) followed
by wp_enqueue_script('comment-reply'). This should be allowed through
the theme check as it will now match the closing parenthesis properly.
