Booting from USB3 drive connected to Thunderbolt Docks
Updated the previous page on Booting from USB3 drive connected to Thunderbolt Docks? with reply from Chris at OWC about booting USB3 drives from their TB2 Dock:

"We have performed some testing and found that Thunderbolt 2 Docks are bootable over USB 3.0 if:

1) The Mac is a Mid 2013 or later model
2) The OS being booted to is OS X 10.9.4 or later.
