The only thing I can say is I am not concerned at all about the scenario you mentioned as I test major updates in a test environment (which any developer should have IMHO) and if something breaks I deal with it in whatever way possible.
My question might be addressing a different scenario than you're describing. Mine question is more analogous to the bugfixes that show up for Atahualpa from time to time, and not about major ThemeFrame revisions breaking an old theme.
Suppose a small bug makes its way into a theme created by ThemeFrame (e.g. every letter "q" shows up italicized... just as a stupid example). The developer realizes ThemeFrame is responsible for putting this bug into themes, and makes a .01 revision to address the problem.
Is it then my responsibility to fix the code in the theme by hand, or will ThemeFrame be able to detect these small bugfixes? [Clearly, I do not yet understand the extent to which code will be similar between themes created by ThemeFrame]
