Sorry, if this sounds a bit harsh, but if you think you know which is the
Debian Way that's fine for you, but frankly I don't care for several

1) There simply is no such thing as a Debian Way. This is an ongoing process
of discussions. Or why do you think we have policy changes on an almost
monthly basis?

2) You don't care to give us a pointer to any sort of a proof for your
opinion. Not to policy, not to other discussion. Simply nothing. Thus your
opinion is simply that: your opinion.

3) Your opinion is different to what our policy states. If you don't like
this fine. Try to change policy, but don't tell us what the Debian Way is.
