1. Define "some level of support" e.g. what would be the minimum that is 

2. How would this be indicated on the theme's page in the Theme Directory?

3. How would a submission by a completely new theme author be handled?

4. If such a scheme could be implemented, how would this impact (if at 
all) on the handling of theme specific queries on the forums?
