I tend to agree with you, LazyLightning (also, excellent name). On the one hand, it literally meets the definition of "supported". On the other hand, given the rest of the pertinent info for the situation, the act is pretty much inconsequential. I think the only argument that can be made is that nobody else would have had the same opportunity to procure water there.
