But why does the state of the package (native vs non-native) can have
any effect on a CTTE decision?  Or do you want to say I can block CTTE
from reaching any kind of decision just by uploading a package as
native?  Sorry, but this does not compute.

Sure, but this is a direct violation of a CTTE decision.  How often do
you think someone could do that?
