OK, that makes sense - but why is in not documented?

It would make the rules much easier to understand if such requirements
were explicitly documented.

AFAICT, the underlying requirements for most of the ASF rules are
rarely made explicit.
This makes them harder to understand, especially in edge cases.
It also makes them harder to amend (even just a clarification),
because in general it's not possible to verify if the proposed update
still meets the requirements.
