An ACEA sequence can be "part of" an approval by being either a requirement or a basis.
And in the case of VW 507 00, it is a requirement that the oil "...must comply with the requirements in the latest issue of ACEA Oil Sequences, class and category C3".

It is, although VW also state 1.5% ash for some reason. They also have a DPF blocking engine test in 507 00.

"Low ash" HDEO is higher ash than "low ash" PCEO.

C3
SA - 0.8%
Phosphorus - 0.09%
Sulphur - 0.3%
NOACK 13%

CK-4 / FA-4
SA - 1.0%
Phosphorus - 0.12%
Sulphur - 0.4%
NOACK 13%

If the car didn't consume any appreciable oil I would do it but would not want to take the responsibility to advise others to do so.
