I really can't see that this is important.

Where is it written in policy that sendmail may change it's name "sendmail:

Yet I have no complaints with this.  It's rather useful.

Why should policy mandate acceptable and unacceptable uses of argv[0]?

Policy doesn't mandate command-line options, does it?
