There's so much material to package and so little time. You don't do FE
packagers any favour by accepting everything they propose blindly.
Sometimes providing a checklist of strongly recommended technical
features will help them choose between competing apps. And they don't
discover after months of gruelling packaging work they bet on the wrong
horse - no one's interested in foo app because bar does the same (and is
IPv6/UTF-8/x86-64/GTK-2 whatever compatible)
