I understood this, and my point (which you've cut out) was more that if
there is no program able to use this library with a free VM and/or if the
maintainer of the library can't think of any use case where his library
could work under a free VM, then the library SHOULD NOT/CANNOT be part of
Also: will the rational be part of the finalized policy?
