I'm not uneasy with this at all. The ftpmasters' job is not to decide
the policy and then implement it without discretion. The policy is
written by them and is there to help them make their decisons and to
help others work with them.
This is no different to any developer deciding what's acceptable in
their package according to some `non-usual policy requirements that
can be difficult to justify'.
