No one's seriously advocating it, and it doesn't benefit anyone. Please at least come up with examples that are vaguely _plausible_. If you want that formulated as a "principle", as though that makes it somehow better, I've already said: ] Sending your tax return, or your latest entries ] in your diary, or whatever, to someone random and sending your changes ] to some program to its author aren't comparable.

Which is to say: sending your tax return to someone when you change a program is not a reasonable thing to do. As such, it's not a reasonable thing for a license to require you to do.
