Strategic in what way? Bug 52442 comment 14 which was the rationale that was
given was basically technical issues.

It's unclear why discussions on meta/wikimedia-l/etc. are required. Shouldn't
any violation of [[m:Founding principles]] (it's #2 on the list) immediately be
something that should be fixed?

I'm not sure how to convince someone that the founding principles are extremely
important without just saying that.
