[Bioc-devel] R6 and Bioconductor

I am thinking of creating package for Bioconductor, and I am wondering about the use of R6 classes (from the R6 package). I do indeed intend to use existing Bioconductor classes such as SummarizedExperiment and interact and make use of other Bioconductor packages, such as scater and DESeq2. This appears to be in accordance with the guidelines (https://www.bioconductor.org/developers/package-guidelines/#classes), but does the use of R6 classes disqualify the package from being in Bioconductor? Do I need to write my classes as S4 in order to qualify?

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,
