Could you avoid interpreting everything either pure black or pure white?

The point is that if you codify things in documents, you *have* to
'debug' those documents through a black and white interpretation,
because that interpretation will happen.

What you're asking for is like, "can you just test what my program is
supposed to do with just the intended inputs?"

You have to think about the unintended consequences.

The text is
saying "It welcomes all contributors". That doesn't mean committing
everything that gets submitted.

Someone who cannot get *anything* submitted will get upset and cry
foul about not-welcoming behavior, and so it goes.

In what industrialized nation can you not reject job applicants for low experience, due to that being discrimination against a constitutionally
protected class?

The protection is against harassment, not about getting changes

I don't see wording to that effect, though; that's just what you think.
