How do you define "more" and "less" advanced?

Surely any species susceptible to influence is subordinate somehow now matter how powerful their ships are.
Put it this way: If another organization or species with technology more advanced than the Federation, decided to share it with them, then the Federation could legally accept it. There is no part of the Prime Directive which forbids the Federation from *accepting* help; it just lays out the circumstances under which it can't *give* help.
