It's just a request. We can request all sorts of things, and if the
FSF wanted they could laugh in our face and say "hell no". The more
important part of the resolution is the statement that the WMF, the
FSF, and CC have been discussing this issue together, so we can all
assume that this particular request was not made without the proper
consideration from all parties.
