There may be a relatively simple solution to by-passing the upload checks:
add a flag (read: theme tag) similar to BuddyPress themes that by-passes
certain aspects of the upload checks (Theme Check, too?)
Then if the Theme Author chooses to use this "niche" tag; they would be
required (aside from mandatory Theme documentation) to explain why they are
using the niche tag in the (initial?) Trac ticket(s).

Is something like this a good starting point/doable?
