I think this would be quite helpful already, unless it will cause a
diplomatic incident with the people working on my bug report.
But you may wish to check the actual minimal requirements, I think
they are higher:

Typo in "downloaded".

I think here it really is 2.4.2 and 0.8.1 and not the .0 release.

Well, that is okay, people having these old versions installed (who should be
fewer and fewer, even my stable debian ships gmp-5.0.5) can still use them
at their own risk. The problem is with newbies being enticed to expressly
download and install outdated versions.
