This is really not helpful. The ASF is not a place where things are
written in stone. On multiple occasions I and others, have said the
policy might be changeable here.

What we are discussing are the options for the *future*. I am not
playing with semantics I am stating a simple fact - if the policy as
it is today is restricting the AOO podling the ASF will consider
changing that policy.

At best arguing against this fact is a waste of time, at worst
claiming this fact is not relevant is preventing us from considering
other potential solutions.

Lets continue to focus on what the AOO *wants* not what some of us
perceive is *allowed*. Once we know what is wanted we can explore what
is possible.
