Does other ftp masters agree with this assessment of considering the
size of the package as the only criteria to accept or reject a package?
I don't agree with forcing other contributors to do extra, non standard,
hacks instead of following the standards were applicable.

node-three is the standard way for every node tools including webpack to
find this package. Having to replicate this structure for every
depending package is not acceptable.

I have not objected to every rejection, where it made sense I have
already embedded some modules (is-svg, unique-slug for example, and
switching to a embed first and package on second dependency approach in
general), but I don't agree with this case.
