Austin, did you see James's earlier post? I've quoted it for you:

James and I are on agreement on this point.

I believe we can allow Crossover to be a special case if a user opts
to mention it in the "Additional comments" section. "It works better
in Crossover Office" is perfectly acceptable to me, given the amount
of work Codeweavers put in to Wine, but I won't say the same for other
Wine project forks (Cedega, ReactOS) that are a world apart and don't
contribute back to upstream.
