This is a very strange definition of a centralized network! In truth, a
centralized network is defined as a network that is dependent on a
single governing and/or centrally controlled entity.
Centralization has nothing to do with the possibility or not to use the
command line, or to use an unofficial application: it is eventually
always the same server that is contacted and the same entity that
controls everything.
