It's a requirement we *already* consciously dropped when we approved the
new projects requirements. Or do you mean you want to come back on that

We can refine those rules as we go and consider applications and realize
the rules are incomplete... But denying their existence and ask to
freeze until they are defined sounds a bit weird. The rules are there.
Slow consideration of additions is the way to make iterative progress,
not freezing.
