you forgot the word arbitrary. the terms are completely arbitrary.

the names policy panels seem to attract people that make a career
of being unelected public representatives.

note too the policies are only enforceable by contract. auda has no

through a registrar.

I enforce the policies entirely because of contract, that doesnt mean I
have to agree with them.
