 I agree with Ari that this isn't problematic, as it doesn't change the
 behaviour of a classic theme.

 Classic themes and block themes can be defined in several ways. However,
 here are definitions that reflect the current behaviour of
 `WP_Theme::is_block_theme()` [https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-
 /class-wp-theme.php#L1484 source]:

   **Block theme:**
   A theme that has an `index.html` file in the `templates` or `block-
 templates` directory.

   **Classic theme:**
   A theme that does not have an `index.html` file in the `templates` or
 `block-templates` directory.

 Since the theme in question has a `templates/index.html` file, it is not a
 classic theme, so classic theme behaviour has not been changed.
