I see your point on it and not sure if it should be mandatory either. But since we do support the free themes on the support forums it would make it easier to do so. Was just a thought. :)
Any other feedback?

I could see this as a recommendation and to a certain extent I am making it a personal coding standard to at least add code block termination comments throughout my most newest theme project (and will likely refactor my existing projects in a similar fashion).
I do not see this currently as being a required "standard" although I would be happy to re-visit the idea more thoroughly once the "Make" WordPress Inline Documentation guidelines are written and published for general use. I would also suggest putting this idea forward for potential inclusion with that "handbook" group.
As it is, I support the idea but not as a requirement and only as a reviewer's personal recommendation (and there is a difference between that and a RECOMMENDED review item).

This way just viewing the source you can instantly tell which file it is in. I really don't think it would require too much effort for theme submitters but I think it would make a great deal of difference for supporting these themes as well as allowing end users to have a method of finding which page to edit.
