Yes, actually, it is.

Change the wording of that guideline.

It's that simple. I'm not changing a darned thing until that guideline
is changed to be more clear than it is right now. You can use all the
logic you want, and try to explain it over and over, and I can even
understand your explanations and that isn't the problem.

The problem is that the guideline, as written, is totally unclear.

Right now, theme check and the uploader say that 3.2 is not allowed
because that was (and *still is*) my interpretation of that text in
the guidelines.

I'm not going to change that until you fix the text of that guideline
to be clear and explicit about what is allowed.

If I can misinterpret it, then so can others, and apparently I've been
misinterpreting it for almost *2 years*. Seriously, you just turned
the world upside down on me here, because I've been operating with a
"2 versions of support" notion in my head ever since theme-check was
created, and now you're telling me that we actually allow THREE
versions of support.

I don't care how you change that text, but it must change. Everything
happening with theme-check *stops* until you do.
