Theme Check plugin lists presence of most of PHP file access functions as
warning. In code it's under MalwareCheck which suggest issue with how they
might be used rather than with their presence in general.

However I had found mentions on forum alike "Themes submitted to the Theme
Repository are not allowed to open or write to files - hence the warning in
the Theme Check plugin."
no mention at all in Codex.

What are the repository rules on:

1. Reading files in theme.
2. Writing files in theme.
3. [Not] using filesystem APIs to do either (if applicable).
