    No such decision has been made as far as I know although it has been discussed
    at various times.

In private email, and the implication is that this was a policy.

    IMO, no.

Why not?  I understand build process is always handled by Matt and Richard (despite many attempts in the past to expand this), but I think if Oracle or Akamai can't "force a change" then it seems to me that the OMC shouldn't either.
