Seems to me (but I'm no expert) that Myth's themes need to be a more 
solid construct than just a collection of XML that constantly needs 

What about a theme version number as in each time theme functionality is 
improved in the code, the version number gets bumped but backwards 
compatibility is maintained.

This way, you can say something in the theme setup like "the theme 
you've selected is version 1 while the highest supported is version 3, 
some functionality may not be as expected".

At least then there'll be visible feedback which lets everyone know that 
some themes may need updating.

Just my 2c.
