I'd say: just relax and follow your original idea.  It makes sense and
your reasons make sense to me too.

Worse comes to worst, someone will file a BZ ticket and/or ask FESCO
for a decision.

So far, from FESCO, I've only seen caillon comment and also agree that
you should follow your plan.

I don't think FESCO should be seen as wanting to police each and every
of your decisions.  I think we trust the maintainers to make the
right decisions.  I think FESCO should only step in when there is a
disagreement between different maintainers that they are unable to
resolve between themselves.  In this case, different opinions have been
expressed but I didn't see someone violently oppose your plan.  Of
course, given an infinite amount of free time we could make many
wonderful things, but we must be content with what reality has to

Kind regards,
