That works reasonably well for licenses because people reading licenses
tend to do so in a rather detail oriented fashion so it's not that big
an obstacle to have something that's a bit harder to follow. It's not
clear to me that the same thing is going to apply to people reading
codes of conduct, especially those looking for reassurance from them.
It might be OK but it's probably worth thinking about.
