That must now you be joking, right? ;)

It is not, they would have told me directly.
I did directly comment "if you think requesting that data is le-
gitimate, can you please hint on RFCs or rules requiring that?
Or work with the community to get this into RFCs?  That would

accepted widely."
I got no comments on that, I think these are simply own rules.
