Comment (by afragen):

 In patch for [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/43992 #43992] it was
 necessary to add {{{Requires WP}}} and {{{Requires PHP}}} to the default
 list of plugin headers. These would be optional headers. This enables the
 patch to function for plugins that are not in the Plugin Repository.

 I feel this is necessary to cover the broadest range of plugins.
