There are some problems with plugin approach: 1. Plugins update requires additional work for user. 2. Additional queries to db. 3. Relying on third-party plugins may limit flexibility when developing new features

1. Very true but it’s best to get users used to using plugins because it prevents them from getting locked into a particular theme.

2. Not true at all. There is zero difference between code in a plugin and code in a theme.

3. Then build it as a plugin yourself.

Ad.2 I meant that most options frameworks store data in a single db option instead of few. Plugins require separate db options thus causing additional queries.

I’ve been using recaptcha in contact form. If you have better idea how to prevent spam I would like to hear it.

Perhaps try not including a contact form with a theme.

The person who mentioned the arms race above is 100% correct here. Theme developers, especially on Theme Forrest (for some reason) think the best way to attract customers is to pack in “features” like their life depended on it. OMG , my theme comes with a contact form, 100 shortcodes, ecommerce, caching, facebook integration, and faux forum capability! It must be the best theme!

I totally agree but this is what users want and we can’t do anything about it except to give them what they want.

If a theme author can’t even get their theme to pass Theme Check’s ridiculously dumb checks, then it’s probably not worth the valuable time of our reviewers to even look at.
I completely disagree with you. Theme check’s flags even Google recaptcha library. The main goal of theme check was to ease the work wordpress.org reviewers.
Why would you use the Google recaptcha library in a theme?
That’s a perfect example of a feature that should never be in a theme. You would only place the reCaptcha form in one of a few places: comment forms, registration, login, contact form, etc. And none of those should be built into a theme.

Is this true that using SMOF in themes has been banned ?
