I can't remember... do the new changes allow you to extend the canvas? I've rotated a shot, and I have a completely white, tiny corner that doesn't exist. Can I clone that in from the background to extend the canvas? Or is that still illegal?

(I assume it's perfectly legal in extended, of course)

Yes, use content aware fill

You may:

“use cloning or similar tools to fill in gaps around the perimeters of panoramic or perspective-corrected photos with appropriate bits to continue the interrupted image.”

Probably covers it.

But simple rotating isn't perspective correction.

True, in the narrowest interpretation. I cannot imagine anyone getting DQ'd because of that though. It's clear that the spirit of the rule is that small area fills are allowed when the need is created by image transforms.

Kirbic is right.

But you cannot simply add canvas and fill it in because you didn't originally leave enough space at the sides or top or something, right? I know that's not what Wendy is talking about, but it's just come up in my group, so I thought I'd double check.

Correct.
