I'm sure someone will correct me, but I can't recall an instance where Adobe has taken a similar action. So perhaps the better term is "unprecedented"?

I request that you both keep your facts straight.  Apache != Adobe,
even though it is easy to confuse the two because the words begin
and end the same.

I have repeatedly informed this WG of the Apache decision.  I did not,
in fact, discuss it within Adobe before the Apache PMC had voted on
the patch, applied it to the 2.4.x branch, and then voted on the
2.4.3 release.  That decision process is publicly archived on the
Apache mailing lists.

If you have more questions about Apache's decision, I suggest you
ask the Apache folks who are not employed by Adobe.
