Comment (by Ipstenu):

 I disagree.

 Tested up to is one of the few ways we have to show end users, who don't
 understand the ecosystem, that developers are paying attention and making
 sure their code works on new versions of WP. If 'punishing' them with
 lousy search results forces them to test and update, I think that benefits
 the users.

 And of course if they bump and lie and didn't test and it breaks, they'll
 get a lot of 1 star reviews.

 That said, I would think if tested up to is .1 above or below the current
 version, it should be okay. Like if I tested on 4.8 beta and tagged my
 plugin, that should be okay while 4.7 is current.
