A Code of Conduct should be clear and not hedged around with footnotes
and interpretations in my opinion, which is why I offered the patch
like this.

The way I look at this is that it's very much like a vendor driver.
Some are mirror images of the source because we work closely with them;
others could be forks. However, the process for vendor drivers is that
we make them work for us first and then see how the vendor wants to
handle it.

Once we agree the shape of what we need I promise to try to push it
back into the source ... is that good enough compromise?
