That FAQ seems to be outdated. Take a look at the current CDD (https://source.android.com/compatibility/4.1/android-4.1-...):

Yes, the requirements changed with Android 2.3. This is when MUST was replaced with SHOULD WRT camera.

Want to create something new and exciting? Feel free: Android is FOSS, after all! Want to get hundreds of thousands applications and, perhaps, small percentage of sales (not sure if Google actually does this or not but this is logic approach)? Talk with Google first and see if they'll be interested in your creation enough to alter the CDD.
