Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Apparently the file was already added to the theme in [3442], it's just
 not referenced anywhere:
 plugins/readme.txt at 4223]

 There was also a change in [3444] to recommend the Markdown format, which
 went unnoticed.

 I think it should probably be moved to the `plugin-directory` plugin
 though, since it's not related to the theme, and the theme is not the most
 obvious location for it.

 It would also be nice to create a rewrite rule so that the URL could be
 `https://wordpress.org/plugins/files/readme.txt` instead of
