The original proposal (by me) simply covered the ability to reverse
engineer proprietary applications/formats, and having some sort of
guarantee that this wouldn't result in a member suing another one.

All of the objections that have been made seem quite reasonable to me
and I've got no problem in concluding that the proposal is simply not
feasible. But the original proposal was much more focused (because I
do know that it's simply impossible reaching any kind of consensus

P.S.: I'm keeping the Cc: list because I don't know how many of the
listed recipients are actually subscribed to the mailing list.
