My initial reaction is: no. I think the consequences of moving an existing
WordPress installation to a new domain are outside the scope of what should
be asked of Theme developers.

Especially for things like custom backgrounds, custom image headers, custom
nav menus, etc. - such things aren't actually registered/stored in the
*Theme's* options, but rather in theme_mods, which is handled/controlled
entirely by core.
