This sounds great.

What you want basically is that for any build that's meant to create a release:

-Rat should run
-The build should fail if Rat reports any anomalies
-The Rat exclusions should ideally be defined in the same way for all
modules, for consistency
-The Rat exclusions should be commented to indicate why each exclusion
(or family of exclusions) is here

I think this should be documented in a "coding standards" or "release
management" page, does OpenWhisk have this already?
