[MPlayer-dev-eng] [POLICY] clarify conditions for functionality removal

We have the following paragraph in our policy that forbids removing
functionality from the code:
4. Do not change behavior of the program (renaming options etc) without
first discussing it on the mplayer-dev-eng mailing list. Do not
remove functionality from the code. Just improve!
I think this needs to be revisited. Removing functionality can make
sense in certain cases (MHz counter anyone?) and should be allowed under
certain conditions. I therefore propose updating the policy to read:
4. Do not change behavior of the program (renaming options etc) or
remove functionality from the code without first discussing it
on the mplayer-dev-eng mailing list.
I think this is closer to the way we handle the situation right now and
makes more sense.
