"allowed" is the wrong word.  We have policies for good reasons, and
those policies have usually shown to make good sense.  But the "good
reasons" need not necessarily apply to every single case.  Since the
likelihood to discover afterwards that heeding the policy would have
been smarter after all is quite non-zero, exceptions are rather rare
by common agreement.  I am probably the person taking liberties with
our policies most often, usually because the effects of heeding them
would bog my present productivity down more than I can justify.

If you don't heed the policies and things go wrong, you can't expect
others to be overly enjoyed.
