Okay, I give up. This will be my last mail on the subject at hand. 

Let me just say this: There's little sense in providing documentation and 
guidelines if a long enough period / big enough magnitude of non-compliance 
is enough to make everybody assume that the documentation is wrong and needs 
to be creatively interpreted in order to match the status quo.

I also have great doubts that there's any chance of ever getting that kind of 
confirmational response you're looking for - from portmgr, RE or whoever you 
feel should have the last word. I'd love to be proven wrong though.
