Let me put it this way: it makes it *less* useful. Take being
part of a Linux distro -- if your project can't be delivered via
that channel it is by definition reaches less people, hence
it is less useful.

But to Greg's point -- this is a tangent to this discussion of ASF
policies. I was putting forward a principle that, in general, increases
the downstream consumption of the projects coming from the
foundation. It is a good principle, but in no way it is part of the policy.

Thanks,
Roman.
