Better WP.org featured themes rotation

Currently 15 themes are on the featured themes rotation with thumbs and description. After looking at the download stats it seems that this is the one most important factor for theme popularity.

I propose enhancing the rotation system to include more themes based on quality, with several rotation levels e.g 3 levels and 50 themes to give credit to more quality themes, and to have more "fair" theme exposure.

We're just beginning an assessment of the .org site with the intention of redesigning to make it a more useful resource, including making access to themes and plugins much more prevalent and friendly. Will be setting up ways for community to submit suggestions and feedback once we've put together a short proposal on a re-org of the site.

Theme review team now has the capability to do this sort of thing, and are in the process of coming up with their own guidelines. So, closing this as fixed.
