Child theme doesn't appear in theme list if parent is not present (Multisite)

I am running the latest beta version of 3.0 in multisite. I noticed that when a child theme is uploaded to the theme directory and the parent theme is not present, there is no indication that the child theme is there.
I'm not sure if this is a feature enhancement or a bug, but I think themes with broken stylesheets and/or missing parents should still show up in the list of themes- but with a notice explaining why they can not be activated.
For instance, it would be much more helpful if the child theme appeared in the list along with a notice that "[current theme name] can not be activated because the parent theme [parent theme name] is not present."
It only took me a few minutes to figure out, but I could see some users banging their heads on the table about this one.
