It has the phrase "must not support" and a version in it, but you're
telling me that the version given is actually allowed to be supported.

How is that in any way clear, at all?

I don't know how you should fix it, because apparently I have no idea
what the guideline actually is.. As I read that, right now, even with
your explanation, then I'm reading that theme authors must not support
WordPress 3.2 or earlier. I don't see how anybody could read that
guideline any differently. It's perfectly clear as it is now: No
supporting 3.2 or earlier.

If you want to change it to make WordPress 3.2 capable of being
supported, which that guideline explicitly says it cannot be, then you
should change it to say that WordPress 3.2 *is* capable of being
supported. How you do that, I have no idea. I would suggest changing
it to not say what it currently says, but what you change it to
depends on what you think it is supposed to say. Which, again, I have
no idea how you could read it any differently from the way I'm reading
it right now.
