Use of subjunctive

Many years ago in a Mexican Spanish school I was taught that in a sentence like.  No creo que Susana venga/haya venido hoy only those 2 options are correct. The imperfect and pluperfect subjunctive are only used if the verb in the main clause is in a past tense. There seems to be disagreement on this topic. What does RAE say?  Is there regional variation on this topic?
