I wasn't very clear here. What I mean is that I think that the 
current policy already doesn't put an obligation on the sponsor to
follow everything his sponsoree did, but help in case it is asked

At the same time I also agree that it is not a bad idea to revisit
this policy and make it clearer, so I am all for the changes, except
for the bits I said in the previous mail.
