I like this. It's got a good "founding document" feel to it. It doesn't take sides. It allows reasonable accommodation for situation and person. I would be concerned that some may not feel protected enough by its language; it doesn't really say what the punishment is for not according by it. I wonder what the development process for it involved.

See my other comment, but matz specifically eschewed enforcement provisions. See https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12004 and e.g. search on his name, also skim to get a general idea about how it all happened.
