I'm pretty sure that, for Odoo v8 and AGPL, all modules and themes must 
be published under a compatible license.

If you have an access to the theme, like a demo or the current live 
preview into the store, you must have access to the source code, thanks 
to the AGPL and the network redistribution already mentioned.

Wordpress and Drupal are clear about that :

And no, loading code into database doesn't allow to bypass the GPL. It's 
still a derivative work (which need AGPL code to run).
