It stems from the fact that, when someone behaves dishonorably and
doesn't keep their commitments, or tries to shirk those commitments in
order to harm others (in fact, even saying loudly that his intent is to
harm others), one should be wary of entering into an agreement with them
again.  Who is to know is, once Jambunathan revokes his general
assignment and starts doing case-by-case assignments, he won't also try
to use those to exert power over Emacs and Org development?  He probably
will.  You teach people how to treat you.

By walking away from his code, if Org chose to do that, it would only be
protecting itself from further trouble.
