I haven't found info on how uploading is handled

Many theme authors don't use the theme directory because it currently
doesn't encourage visits to authors sites as much as previous
implementations, and doesn't supply as much Google Juice.

Site visits and Google Juice are 2 of the main reasons plugin authors create
plugins. Obviously not the only reasons, but there is a lot of additional
work making something public that was intended for personal use.

Obviously you shouldn't force a user to go to a website to download, but you
should be presented with a link to go to the website specific to the plugin
alongside any download link (which the theme viewer doesn't provide)
