Flannery and the New Convention Chart

I play Flannery as 4 and 5-6. It is illegal to make the bid with less than 10HCP. Nearly all articles on Flannery use 11-15HCP. 10HCP seems lost in translation. Our card states 10-15HCP and when questioned after the alert, we also state 10-15. I have been told by a local director than this is OK and the true restriction is making the bid with fewer than 10HCP. I ask those in the know, is this use of the convention legal. I'm not discussing the pros and cons of the bid, just the legality of a 10-15 HCP range.
