True. Are there many targets which are now in the stable-category which
don't meet these requirements? And of course the support by installer
and the manual are discussable. Maybe "support by installer" could be
replaced with "there's a documented way to install Rockbox", either with
the installer or with some instructions of the wiki. And the manual - I
don't know, i hardly used it, so i can't say how much it helps a port to
completeness :)
