[theme-reviewers] Selling other content on Theme's web site

My theme, Weaver II, has its own sites for theme support, and for the
premium up-sell version.

As per previous discussions with Chip, the up-sell Pro version is GPLed.

But I'd like clarification of what else can be sold on the theme's own
domain or sub-domains. My theme in particular allows others to design their
own sub-theme and share it with other theme users via a data file. Recently
I've been approached by members of my user community who would like to
create a marketplace to sell their design services, banner images, and
sub-themes they've designed to use with my theme. These people would
probably prefer to not GPL their designs.

Ideally, I would like to create a subdomain of my support site and include
links to the marketplace. Is there any policy on this kind of arrangement?
Would it require a link to a totally independent domain name, or is a
sub-domain ok. I'm assuming that theme support sites are allowed links to
sites that sell stuff. None of the links will appear directly in either the
free repository version, nor in the Pro version.
