Comment (by celloexpressions):

 The theme review team decided in their meeting today that they'd like to
 allow up to four screenshots for themes.

 Core can implement multiple screenshots fairly easily, but support needs
 to be added to the .org API first. Most likely, the additional screenshots
 would be queried separately once the theme details modal is opened,
 possibly along with additional data such as reviews that isn't included
 initially. It might make sense to either optimize the initial load to also
 not include the author, tags, or description, or just query for all data
 at once, though.

 However, I'm still not convinced about the necessity of multiple
 screenshots. Core will be emphasizing a direct "install & preview" action
 with https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/37661, allowing users to get a
 live preview of themes and different device displays via device preview in
 the customizer. There is a question about whether it's better for users to
 look at additional screenshots before deciding or previewing and
 customizing a theme before deciding if they want to move on to something

 If we are moving forward, I'd say we'll need it working via the API within
 the next 4-5 weeks or so if we want to get core support into 4.7.
