 Themes currently do work that way, however the theme process is different
 than the plugin process. There's a lot more plugins and therefore slugs,
 and reserving them for merely requesting is going to create a lot of
 problems and a lot of extra work.

 If the choice is between changing the themes system to match or allowing
 plugin slugs to become polluted, then yes, themes needs to change. Plugin
 slugs can not become polluted this way. The workload will significantly
 increase because of it.

 The ideal choice is to leave themes as is (for now) and make plugins
 behave differently.
