Indeed, thank you for catching this.

The rule is that all versions checks are in Platform.h and similar central files. There were many instances of code where engineers thought that checking versions close to use was better, but moving a subset to Platform.h proved that people were often incorrect about how well they can splatter version checks throughout the code. So now we have this rigid rule. It also helps Apple engineers think twice before doing certain weird things.
