Select Bundles → Select Bundle Item…

Switch to “Other” in the scope bar and pick “Semantic Class” in 
the gear menu drop-down.

Now enter “theme.light” and you will see only light themes installed 
on your system.

Granted, the experience is not very good because once you select a theme 
you will have to redo the above steps.

I think having the item chooser immediately switch to a theme, once it 
gets selected in the list, would make it a lot more useful (while still 
a bit hidden).
