The creator DID have first release(public svn), and he dual-licensed it under terms which fully allow and encourage derivative works(LGPL/CC). The only problem here is that the Oxygen creator didn't really grok that fact. He should just take the theme off the public svn, and remove the license until he believes his theme is ready. The negative reaction garnered, however, is a different story.
