Well, I don't see what would be wrong with 21000.5 As long as you're
keying waveform is reasonable and you're not sending faster than 100
wpm. ;-)

No, that's not stated emphatically by anyone. 

In practice and to be clear, on USB, how close one can hug the low edge
comes down to the sideband supression and frequency accuray of your rig.

Huh ?!? 

Wrong sideband or wrong edge. 0.5 kHz up from the bottom on LSB is most
definitely out of the band!
