It's a perfectly understandable viewpoint, just not one I'm happy with. 
As I said, the worst case for me is that I upload stuff to Debian less 
often - I certainly don't expect Debian to change policies just to make 
my life easier. I've no strong opinions on the more general case, and I 
certainly don't think I'm in any position whatsoever to tell Debian what 
to do.
