If there's a policy, let's see it, let the policy makers defend their
choices.

I was thinking that the policy that has been hinted at (but not set out
clearly) might have some legal basis, but more likely it's just a case
of "my ball".

There are precedents for tracing activity on the internet to individuals
in the event of illegal activity. Requiring a name from a contributor,
without further checks of identity, is really a worthless
identification. As a maintainer, requiring an individual's name but not
checking it could put you in a worse position than accepting
pseudonymous contributions.
