I better jump in because I don't like where this conversation is headed.

I don't think there should be any such stipulation for a catchall review policy, especially when a lot of newcomers are using starter themes like my own BlankSlate and underscores and we'll see tons of themes with the same code and similar styles.

It should only be of concern if/when an author feels someone has "ripped off" their theme in some inappropriate manner etc. Then, it should be brought to the attention of the alleged offender for discussion and should be a judgment call, not a one size fits all suspension.
