[theme-reviewers] Remove Debug Bar from recommended plugins

Everyone, I'd like to propose a removal of Debug Bar from the recommended
plugins for testing (on pages like
http://make.wordpress.org/themes/about/how-to-join-wptrt/ or any other
pages in Codex related to Theme Review or Theme Unit Test data).

I'm usually testing on several different installs and I finally found out
that Debug Bar is hiding some notices on a default install with a default
setup (say, blank WP, WP_DEBUG as true and imported test data). It seems to
have some custom error handling or something, but I don't see the issues on
the frontend when the plugin is enabled.

Apologies in advance if I'm missing anything, but from my perspective it's
suppressing actual notices/warnings which is not healthy for the review
