Debian Policy "10.7.4 Sharing configuration files" question

Hello there.

I found, that package rtpg-www modifies /etc/hosts on installation/purge


I thing this violate 10.7.4

"The maintainer scripts must not alter a conffile of any package,
including the one the scripts belong to."

But maintainer disagrees with me arguing that preinst asks user, and
that's user who modify /etc/hosts (using preinst, eah).

Please comment this issue. Here or in #608451

Best regards,
 Alexander GQ Gerasiov
