crate specs

Hey all–
I am in charge of modifying the crate for my team, and I am wondering about this instruction.

“All crates must ‘sit’ on 2 pieces of 4” by 4" lumber, spaced at least 28" apart. This requirement will facilitate moving the crates with a pallet lift."

Does anyone know if the crate’s weight actually has to rest on the two 4x4s, or if we can put it on casters? Or does nobody know and should I email FIRST?
Thanks!

It’s found in the competition specific information section (ie the section on New Jersey or Richmond or Nationals). They decided to hide a lot of information there (like ship date!) this year.
