Is that something that could be fixed? Has anyone asked the pypi
maintainers whether they could change those rules, either in general or by
granting exceptions on a case-by-case basis to projects that have proven
track records and importance?

It would seem to me that if the rules on pypi are forcing critical projects
like numpy to host elsewhere, then the rules are flawed and are preventing
pypi from serving is intended purpose.
