Thanks for the feedback! We just don't have the manpower or ability to
personally evaluate the code quality of all themes produced by any
theme shop we list. The commercial page is pretty up-front about the
criteria for inclusion in the list. We make no claims about the
quality of code, design, or support provided by any given theme shop.
Your concern about the requirement adding to the backlog of themes
needing review is certainly one of the reasons we're soliciting
feedback from the TRT.
