Yes, it does appear to be a challenging review ...

... <?php namespace theme; ?> will not work as a textdomain item. As Simon
noted it is more a PHP item (IIRC, it is for establishing a namespace for
the software which would work in favor of reducing/eliminating clashes with
other PHP functions, etc.)

Also to note, 'theme' is not a very good textdomain to begin with ... the
theme slug would be more appropriate; and, the logo as a screenshot is
typically not acceptable either.
