Things always change and improve over time, for as long as good people are running those things, that is true. The subject was not the improvement over time, subject was the current change of policies or as you said "amend policies", as you would need to have actual reason to amend anything, and in case of any amendments and proposals, one should propose it to RMS, and if there is rejection or lack of acceptance, one shall respectfully take it back.
