The issue here is that if we don't require contact information for
developers, then any extension could have zero support. I feel a bit
bad including an extension with zero support on our official LO
extension site, especially if some user starts using it on 3.5 and
then upgrades to 4.0 and it breaks (or something similar). But as long
as we are REALLY clear about the level of support: official/some/none,
then I guess it's okay.

You know, I think that I might need to make some mock-ups to
demonstrate how big of a message I mean when I say "REALLY clear" :-)

Excellent. How are your artistic skills? If I make the badges, I'm
afraid they'll all have crazy fire-breathing animals on them, although
perhaps some people might view that as a plus  :-)
