The premise was that we should aim for having no PLATFORM() #ifdefs in non-Platform and and should instead use other macros that are more descriptive.  I like that rule, but if isn't really possible, we should probably remove the check.

It’s an interesting principle, but I think too far from reality right now.

And it leads to crazy things like the Clipboard in the dom directory with per-platform subclasses in the platform directory.
