Apparently, our control structures are not reliable enough to _enforce_
what we have decided.  It seems we relied primarily on the release team,
which has betrayed the goals of the project, and only count on the FTP
team as a fallback, which so far has done nothing about it.

  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
