Can RX300/RX-RDP/RX-HDX work with PoE?

There is a way to make RX300(or RX-RDP, RX-HDX) works with Power over Ethernet. Active PoE Splitter available from Amazon which is much cheaper and easier than Raspberry Pi PoE Hat circuit.  For example, below is the picture of typical Active PoE Splitter, PoE to Raspberry Pi Adapter (5V Micro USB Power + 100Mbps Ethernet) Alternative to PoE Hat, 802.3af/at compliant. With this adapter, you don’t need separate power adapter to use RX300/RX-RDP or RX-HDX. (Only for Raspberry Pi 3B or 3B+ based RX model. Pi4 is not compatible)

(Amazon retail price range from $10 to $17 vs. PoE Hat ($13-$39) which can not plug into RX-series)
