Recommending properly-coded Themes and offering instructions on how to add that footer tag is what we’re doing, but this is still a very persistent problem unfortunately. Linking to the WP.org Theme Directory is a good idea.
You’re right on the overhead, which is why we’re hoping for some decent (and clever) way to detect this. At this point it doesn’t seem that there is a good workaround to these poorly coded themes.
I think to help combat such themes, it’d be awesome if the Theme preview would additionally scan and warn of a theme that doesn’t have the required tags, etc. — before activation.
