Has there been any explanation for the policy?  I'm having a hard time
thinking of any sensible reasoning.

Obviously there's no problem with posting the patches on the web and
including a pointer to them, or doing that if the patch is particularly
enormous.  It's just insisting on doing it all the time but regardless
of what usptream want that seems odd.
