I disagree, optionality in policy means that you are not forced to have
the g-o-s target. But if you have it, it must conform with the semantics
dictated by policy. It is pretty much the same conformity rules you find
in all API standardization initiatives.

This is a different topic, IMHO not related with this MBF proposal. If
you want to pursue this, you should do that on -policy. As long as the
policy is written as it is now, MBF meant to enforce the current text
have their own merits.
