AFAICS this is what was agreed upon during the sometimes hotly debated 
threads about autodownloader.  However, it might not be what all the 
participants realized was being agreed to.  I strongly suggest that Hans 
be available to talk about it if this is going to be discussed by FESCo 
as it would be unfair to give him the impression that this would be 
acceptable, let him do the work to implement it, and then ban it without 
letting him present what he thought the requirements were and from whom 
he received that impression.
