That's all good, we build our Themes around the platform, what's not is
more than one "personal" link in footer area, or unrelated sites, that
would be considered as SPAM :) And we documented all this in
http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review#Credit_Links as well.

Credit Links

   - Themes may *optionally* designate Author URI and Theme URI in
      - Theme URI, if used, is *required* to link to a page specifically
      related to the Theme. If a demonstration site or page is being used, the
      content must be related to the theme itself.
      - Author URI, if used, is *required* to link to an author's personal
      web site or project/development website.
      - Themes are *recommended* to provide at least one of these two
      links, in order to ensure Theme users have a point of contact
for the Theme
   - Themes may *optionally* include a public-facing credit link in the
   Theme footer.
      - If used, Themes are *required* to include no more than one such
      footer credit link.
      - Credit link, if used, is required to use either Theme URI or Author
      - Credit link anchor text and title are *required* to be relevant and
      appropriate with respect to the linked site. *Spam or SEO-seeded
      anchor text and titles may subject Themes to automatic rejection.*
