The difficulty in moderation of subjective sounds is immense. How would we distinguish what is best? It's easier and best for most users to exclude these types of sources. There are probably other places where this would fly.

You analogy of the poor lossless source vs decent lossy source illustrates the disadvantage of having rules. You can't be perfect. mp3 and lossy sources are easy to test for (as illustrated by five) and that's the best public trackers can do that aim for the best quality. I think our rules in this matter promote the greater good with the least sacrifice.
