In the absence of specific policy covering an area, it is a release
manager's role (in ANY organization) to exercise their best judgement
on whether something is good or not.
That is the whole point of having a human, vs an automated machine in
the position.

 I am taking a stand on this, not merely as a "preference" issue, but
because I believe it is the best, most consistent thing for us to be

(Note: "preference" comes into play, when there is no technical
argument one way or the other.
 In this case, there is a technical argument to be followed)

FYI, to tie loose ends together in this archive; since you declined to
start a vote off, I have started a discussion about stub naming on the
maintainer list .
