I don't think that's really accurate anymore. I will remove the warning.
If people want to support directed identifiers then it's better that they
do something than nothing.

Nevertheless you have to understand the implications of using generated
values and the limitations of that approach, and I know from speaking with
people on the list that there are many sites doing extremely bad things
like generating values using an input that is a name-based attribute so
that the values aren't stable.

That aside, I don't know what documentation you're looking at, but if you
want to use the other connector, you should follow the official
documentation or ask if something isn't documented.

That's a decision only you can make. Only you know your constraints. Can
you add a database? Can you run it? What about redundancy? Etc.
