if a design agency distributes a theme with a link in the footer, why isn't this link a legitimate "vote" for the agency's website? Why does it need to be nofollow? If many websites choose the theme, then the designer's website is surely worth checking out.
I guess its not a natural link made by recommendation of the agency and the ability to choose the lets say a "wordpress theme" could be easily artificially bumped up by the agency themselves by creating numerous blogs.
