A good point to ponder ... and something to add to this as it really does
come down to author aesthetics and prerogatives: should we be once again
looking to add a "child-theme-compatible" theme tag?

> This makes it so that any image set from the style.css either child theme

> If the theme in question ever wants to have child themes associated with

> Since we want everyone to be child theme capable. Then if any defaults
> are set in the parent theme they need to be removed or child themes simply
> will not work when setting a new image for that child theme.
