Guild Raid Achievements question

Can a small guild do some of the older raid achievements with say 3 or so people?

Does the requirement for a certain number of guildies check against the actual raid size, or the potential raid size (say 40, for Molten Core)?
This is a good question :/ so i googled it. I'm in a small guild msyelf, just having a break off from our larger former guild. We've been discussing doing old world content as a way to spend time together and get guild achivements. Here is a copy/paste from a '11 post regarding the requirements. i can't tell if they changed it since then.

Please see the Guld XP guide (

* For all 5-person dungeons from vanilla to Cataclysm, you need 3+ guild members (used to be 4+ prior to 4.0.6).

* For all 10-person content (Temple of Ahn'Qiraj [AQ10 formerly AQ20], Karazhan, Zul'Aman, plus all Lich King and Cataclysm raids in 10-person mode), you need 8+ guild members.

* Rated battlegrounds are now (as of 4.0.6) for 10-person pre-formed groups only, and these require 8+ guild members.

* For Burning Crusade 25-person content (Gruul's Lair, Magtheridon's Lair, Serpentshrine Cavern, Mount Hyjal raid, Tempest Keep, Black Temple, and Sunwell Plateau), you need 8+ guild members.

* For Lich King and Cataclysm 25-person content, you need 20+ guild members.

* For classic 40-person content (Molten Core, Blackwing Lair, and Temple of Ahn'Qiraj [AQ40]), you need 10+ guild members.
