I agree with this analysis, the policy should be fixed with that regard.
I think a patch should be allowed to be applied if:
- it improves something and does not make something else worse;
- the submitter sincerely thinks that doing it in a better way would be too
much work for him;
- no one volunteers to do it in a better way quickly, or said volunteer is
not quick enough;
- the patch has a visible (greppable, if in comment) reference to the
discussion on how to do things right.
