I think the logic behind that is that an EAPI defined outside PMS
wouldn't be bound by PMS's rules anyway, and the EAPIs defined inside
PMS are explicitly listed so there's not much point giving a general
syntactic rule as well (and if there was one, it might encourage
people to write code that blows up messily when it sees a hypothetical
non-PMS EAPI that doesn't obey the rule, rather than simply treating
it as unknown).
