Pending on Theme Review Team to agree on the format. According to 22810 on Core Trac this may not have yet been brought to their attention and I don't see a way to do that without subscribing to a mailing list that would notify us of discussions we're not interested in following.

Seconded - admins will browse changelogs for themes when upgrading. We should surface this information.

We should surface this information.

Yes, very much needed and looking forward to making this happen. Though because the theme repo was recently redesigned, would this need to be modified? A link below or above the last updated section could be one way to expose it I would think.
