This is a matter of perspective. To you it might look like torture and pay-back, but for the guys doing it it could be "making sure he follows all the guidelines". I can understand how easy it is to confuse those two if you aren't fully informed, though. To avoid communicating the wrong message to people outside Gentoo, following Maciej's proposal to "lecture" Arfrever in -core would be a good idea.
