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.
