Thanks Chip and Emil for your feedback. In the review ticket, I recommended transforming the theme into a child theme. This will ensure that the users benefit from updates to Responsive while conserving the layout and functionality of the submitted derivative theme.

Concerning the core patch, you can count in my support. It took me quite some time to wrap my head around how WordPress handles the home.php and front-page.php templates. I think this change will clarify the situation.
