Yes. It *sounds* reasonable.

The problem with relaxing the rules "for this specific case" means
from now on, you run the risk of people argueing that for every other
case, the rules can be relaxed as well, pointing to the precedent

If p5p thinks the current policy is hindering progress, I think p5p
should drop the existing policy, and create a new one. Or it should
stick to its own policies, and not make exceptions. Of course, if
one just keeps changing policies, one may as well not have a policy.
