The only dependency is that a Tier can depend on a lower Tier. Other than that 
we've essentially just announced that we're only vouching for the quality of 
Frameworks as a whole at a given version, although BC and SC compatibility 
guarantees will be there. Obviously in practice something like kio-5.5 might 
work just fine with kcoreaddons-5.3, but that's not a guarantee we're 
advertising in general with Frameworks unless it's listed somewhere else.
