Since it's part of the template, if you really want to, I suppose a solution would be to hybridize it. Like if someone did a Space 1889 theme and they had steampunk starships, they could rate their TL as 3/5 (maybe 3-5 would be a better way to write it since it might also include 4 stuff) by the modern chart. You could do 3/4, or 3-4.
Or you could ignore numbers and take a more thematic approach. "TekLevel = DieselPunk with AlienTek" or something.
