[theme-reviewers] Same text domain for multiple themes?

With the exception of Child-Themes (where it may be acceptable for the same
textdomain to be used as the Parent-Theme), the best practice method is to
have the textdomain for a theme be unique to the theme ... although it may
be considered best practice for a Child-Theme to have its own set of
translation files as the text strings in a Parent-Theme may change without
affecting the general functionality of the Child-Theme.
