I also find this a bit too arbitrarily weighted in favor of the
non-compat maintainer's preference.  I would find it much better to have
a list of extra criteria that are needed for a compat package to be
accepted and the reasons for each criteria.  This would be similar to
how the Games SIG has additional Packaging Guidelines that are specific
to games.  (But in this case, the additional criteria would not
necessarily be packaging related as it's coming from FESCo.)
