So some "somethings" are for personal use and others are for other projects?
Any particular other projects?  How do we tell which is which?

It is GPL except where it isn't.

Does the author of this labor under the delusion that GPL works are not the
property of the original authors, or does he mean that when you put a work
on themes.org it becomes theirs (who are they?  A corporation?)

So some of the stuff is not free?

Or is it just that they won't accept anything that is a derivative of
something they already have?

That's putting it mildly.  I think I have an inkling of what they are
trying to do, but as it stands the policy makes no sense.
