Thank you for your answer. I’ve reviewed the Code of ACF and I’m with you.
Usualy use ACF Pro in Themes for completly new projects. In these cases, I handle it the same way like you: ACF Pro is a requirement for the theme to run. But in these cases I’m in complete control of the installed plugins.
I’m going an other route with the current Plugin and use the build in functions of WP or a framework for the options.
