There is no reason why GNOME shouldn't be able to override those in
your user configuration.

I don't really buy the original argument. Right now, it's not really

we see that abuse actually starts to happen in Ubuntu packages, then
heck, it's not like it was impossible to fix those packages to throw
them out again.
