As Christoph already said, this is difficult to follow. We're talking
about a policy regulating organised editing. The minimum we can have is
"no policy", meaning that people doing organised editing are bound by
the exact same rules as everyone else. In hypothetical survey question
this wold mean:

0 - same as everyone else
1 - a little more regulation
2 - much more regulation

The option "-1" - "people doing organised editing should be bound to
*less* rules than normal mappers" - is not on the table, and if we *had*
added such a reply option it would surely have been perceived as a joke!
