I really despise people claiming to speak for me when they don't know
what I think.

I don't think the previous social contract required us to apply the
DFSG to either documentation or data. Not everything that's unacceptable
violates the social contract, but every that violates the social contract
is unacceptable to release.

It was the stated purpose of the GR to refute the above interpretation. I
don't know why you would claim that it's abusive to accept that.
