It does certainly miss from the list, but the argument might be more
"favor your users"; call it nepotism if you like.

If I understand it clearly, it is not a requirement, but more a good

If it does "taste like dog food" in places, then it might be easier to:
- make informed statements about what might be the reason (on an
implementation standpoint - regarding features, that's an other story)
- have the cook more receptive to comments
