[wp-docs] WordPress Themes and the Sponsored Themes Issue

With the WordPress Theme Viewer official and working well for the past 
year, the WordPress Themes List on the Codex is fairly obsolete. There 
are now over 4,000 WordPress Themes and the Codex list doesn't even come 
close. Now that Matt has declared sponsored WordPress Themes to be 
removed from the WordPress Theme Viewer, a declaration which I assume 
means no WordPress endorsement or permission for featuring sponsored 
WordPress Themes, who wants to be the one to go through the Codex list 
looking for sponsored Themes? Hmmm?

I didn't think so.

Matt's deadline is July 20ish. I'd like to have a few days of 
discussion, unless we are all suddenly unanimous on this.

I propose we remove/redirect the Codex Theme list to the WordPress Theme 
Viewer. A summary and link directing the reader to the Viewer and 
related Theme information and resources works as a replacement for the 
main page. This will take the burden away of maintaining the pages and 
remove the issue of removing sponsored Themes.

What say you all?
