Based on the lack of negative feedback, I've updated with the following:

The assumed and encouraged means that you might run into bugs we have
not noticed because we (most GNOME developers) do not test the other
code paths much. Obviously that is a slow gradual process for Wayland.
At the moment, no Wayland thing. In future you might have to file some
bugs. Plan is to revisit this at GNOME 3.10.

Please do not forget it also specifies "but not required".

On a personal note I highly encourage Linux distributions to use systemd
irrespective of any "not required".
