I would suggest reading the commit message that added this in the first
place. "Explicit guidelines have demonstrated success in other projects
and other areas of the kernel." See also various comparisons of codes of
conduct, which make the same point. The point of this list is precisely
to serve as one such explicit guideline; removing it would rather defeat
the purpose.

In any case, this is not the appropriate place for such patches, any
more than it's the place for patches to the GPL.
