        I never meant that to be a primary factor, no.

        Declaring one is not going to "spend effort to keep packages in
 conformance to policy"  should help tip the balance too. I suspect that

 it should probably not be defined by any single one, and that there
 should be warnings, etc before action is taken, and so on.
