And by implication anything not depending on UNSUPPORTED is
supported? I didn't think this was the case (some unsupported
code can't even be turned off via Kconfig), so I think this
needs clarifying here, so we won't end up with people
considering some feature supported which really isn't. That's
irrespective of the reference to SUPPORT.md.

I'd like to suggest to move UNSUPPORTED past this one, to
then have that have "default EXPERT".
