Not in that sense, but that sense doesn't follow directly from
the word "policy". I'd expect someone consistently ignoring it
to be corrected, but ICBW.

I'm not hostile to balancing debian's composition.  I'm hostile
to discrimination, but I was told that wasn't a list purpose:
are you saying it is? Why do you know better than others?

I think I've stated why enough for now. Texts about political theory
or conflict resolution might help you to understand it. The smallest
(maybe cheapest) I've here is Nigel Risner "It's a Zoo Around Here"
but I don't know where that's available now.
