The truth is, the doc goes as far as explaining that it’d make it a requirement in some future replace.
It minces phrases a bit much less right here,
Whereas that is referred to as out as “STRONGLY RECOMMENDED”, in future Android variations we’d REQUIRE all type-C units to assist full interoperability with normal type-C chargers.
It’s basically the technical paper model of “don’t make me put my foot down.”
