We thus wanted to let distros take care of most of the policies (which

a proliferation of storage places. Hence why we allowed for
multiple backends. But this is an exception rather than the rule.

Why should every distribution decide on some policy? The default way
should work sanely and the way that a user would experience it makes
sense. I help out with Mageia (+GNOME), I'm 98% sure Mageia has 0
interest in creating/developing such a policy.

e.g. Linus complaining about (IIRC) needing to provide a root password
after plugging in a printer. If we create such a situation again I might
even understand why he's rants :-P
