I'd like to see it enforced.
See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=335654#c7 for the confusion
created (and Sysadmin effort taken).

It also means that the process of releasing applications can't be
automated to create all the necessary versions, so someone has to do
it manually.
And chances are, it ain't going to be the application maintainer.
