I agree with Dane on this (and I do use and love Style Tiles -- but they're
a design prototyping tool, and no more a theme than a wireframing tool
would be.)

Given the way Tiles look, I can very easily imagine that people who are
browsing themes would look at them and think "oh, a theme with an image
gallery on the front page". That way lies madness.
