It depends on the details.  Many are not recommended practices.  A
project is likely to get more flak if it takes such paths rather than
more standard paths, e.g., folks declaring that it's absolutely not
allowed.  Some of these may someday be recommended practices if
projects persevere and show how they can be done without violating the
spirit of Apache-style software development.  The board may ask for
more details when a project takes uncommon paths in order to gain
comfort that Apache needs are met.
