And should the decision makers not follow that recommendation, the
flamewars will truely begin.

The format and phrasing of this is:
"The Debian project recommends [something]".
I would feel very uncomfortable going against the project directly
recommending I follow a particular course of action. This indicates to
me that this is more of an instruction, rather than a recommendation,
despite the wording.

<moray> hm, maybe wearing a black t-shirt while dusting my bedroom for the
