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?

Sure, but this is a direct violation of a CTTE decision. How often do you think someone could do that? Bastian -- "Life and death are seldom logical."
