You inferred that meaning yourself, it's not a universal fact. I for one
don't see any reason why the Policy should mandate that feature, or any
other feature not already stated in the manual (or proposed, of course).

In fact, doing this would be the type of intrusive change that the
conservatives among us would actually have reason to object to,
unlike the change described in #88029.
