Is there a need to state this?   To me, it feels obvious, and falls into
the category of 'you can do it but don't expect much help'.  As an
example of entries in this category, I used to use runit for service
management and supervision, and only used the openrc boot target.
Naturally, this worked, but it worked due to me maintaining it, and had
no Gentoo-provided support.

The same is true for many, many configurations, so I don't see the need
to state that explicitly.
