OSI has never adopted such a policy.  And, I infer, none is under
current consideration by the Board.

Separately and aside from that, I think that would be a quite terrible 
policy that would destroy the integrity of OSI's licence certification
program and make it tend to look like a bunch of loons.  No, thanks.
