Feed Spec: Custom made items now 'In Stock'?

With changes to the feed specification eliminating 'available to order' should custom made items be listed as 'in stock' even though they are not?

You got it. We just merged "in stock" with "available to order" to simplify things.

Here's more:
We are simplifying the ‘availability’ attribute by merging ‘in stock’ with ‘available for order’ and removing ‘available for order’. All items that can be shipped in a timely manner can now simply use the ‘in stock’ value. In addition, we are now offering an ‘availability date’ attribute that you can use to let shoppers know when pre-ordered products will be available for delivery.

Thanks for your clarification.
I just hope the google reviewers are also trained to understand this unobvious distinction: I can anticipate many custom goods, which are available to order, being repeatedly disqualified because their landing pages do not say specifically say 'in stock'!
