Sure. Unacceptable interference with the freedom of package authors to
remove stuff. Unacceptable because developers need
the freedom to remove old versions of their software from the internet. :)

unacceptable interference with the freedom of package authors as well?
I'll just switch to debian for my package management needs. :)
