Requests For Packaging policy is wrong about giving authors the power to decline inclusion

I don’t see your point. This requirement is not about FLOSS, it’s
about F-Droid making a decision to not deal with non-cooperative
upstream authors: We don’t have manpower to waste on such apps. You
are free to fork, maintain and include them into F-Droid… also,
“asking” and “notifying” is about being nice and respectful to those
developers that do provide free software.
