These claims are not made in HDMI 2.0 specs, CEA is the body which 
defines VICs, AVI-IF and aspects, so its defined in CEA-861-F spec
IF you check the CEA-861-F spec, you will find this section.

As edid_cea_modes is being used in drm_hdmi_avi_if_from_display_mode, 
only place where its being used to load AVI IF (with aspect ratio 
information), I was talking about both.
But lets talk about VIC only from here.
