Themes should be able to opt-in to a static front page

A theme should be able to register that they are designed to have a static front page by default. Core should then pick up on this as part of the activation process and allow them to pick or create a page, or ignore it and show posts on the front.
Twenty Twelve will most likely need this (http://wpdevel.wordpress.com/2011/12/20/default-theme-twenty-twelve/).
