What happens if they change their policy ? What if it gets even stricter
? Do we have to delete packages because they're acting crazy ?
If a mirror hoster has stupid policies, why just don't change mirror

(and there are a lot more than the official mirrors) are strictly
following their local policies, especially dumb ones.
