 The featured themes and tab are part of the WordPress core. It cannot be
 "turned off" without changing core, APIs, etc.

 So, while it might be hidden from the display on WordPress.org, but that
 isn't where most people see the featured themes anyway, they see it in
 their wp-admin screens.

 So, marking as maybelater for now. The featured themes aren't going away
 anytime soon without a much greater range of changes than fits into a mere
 meta ticket. A better idea would get the themes team to figure out how to
 curate it properly.
