Thierry, when I read your comment on Gerrit I understand you prefer to
amend the existing policy and just make a note for installers (which
is I think the option #2 that I proposed). Can you please confirm
So far I see option #1 has large consensus here, I'll wait for
Thierry's answer to continue to work on it.

Thanks for the feedback so far!
