No such decision has been made as far as I know although it has been discussed
at various times.
In private email, and https://github.com/openssl/openssl/pull/8886#issuecomment-494624313 the implication is that this was a policy.

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.
