"Explicitly" would be a better word:

Like I said, that particular aspect wasn't controversial, so while it
was noted a few times (a few other examples of which you found), it
was the overall discussions that were extensive. Both Daniel and I
knew the zipimport compatibility for packages that were themselves zip
compatible was a deliberate feature, so it was a surprise to me when
Armin Ronacher said in his recent article that it wasn't supported
(and hence the clarification).
