Not really, it's an or clause.  You can use it in an open commercial 
project but not a closed commercial product.

The one thing that is an issue is when people add this commercial 
clause, there isn't any clear meaning to it. Is commercial use simply 
building a theme for that you will sell, or is it also using the source 
on a site from which you sell.

Allowing themes to include these kinds of clauses, where the intent of 
the statement really isn't clear, pushes that potential liability of on 
people who don't even know the issue exists. I would never use something 
with that kind of clause in a client's site for that reason.
