I have no specific plans.

My opinion on the subject is that while there may be good reasons for
the current (rather strict) policy, I don't believe there are real risks
involved with the older, laxer, policy that Debian used to carry in the
past. The current policy could be described as 'nitpicking'.

I don't feel strong enough about that to do something about it, however.
IANAL and everything -- I might well be completely wrong. I believe a
question about this has gone out to a lawyer, so that could well be a
perfectly good resolution to that question.

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
