Apon some further reading, and reflecting on this question, it seems as though you are looking for an answer from a leader in the Cardano Company (IOHK is just temporarily developing the software), while the development approach of Cardano is to allow the community to work through these issues without a central authority dictating the approach taken, or what side of the debate ‘Cardano’ falls on.
From the philosophy section of their website:
"The vast diversity of cryptocurrencies also provides evidence for their social elements. Disagreements about philosophy, monetary policy, or even just between the core developers lead to fragmentation and forks. Yet unlike their cryptocurrency counterparts, fiat currencies of superpowers tend to survive political shifts and local disagreements without a currency crisis or mass exodus.
Therefore, it seems that there are elements of legacy systems that are missing from the cryptocurrency industry. We argue — and have inculcated into the Cardano roadmap – that users of a protocol need incentives to understand the social contract behind their protocol and have the freedom to propose changes in a productive way. This freedom extends to every aspect of a value exchange system, from deciding how markets should be regulated to which projects should be funded. Yet it cannot be brokered through centralized actors nor require some special credential that could be co-opted by a well funded minority.
Cardano will implement a system of overlay protocols built on top of CSL to accommodate the needs of its users."
