Then who is? This problem has been known about for a long time, and a
lot of developers would like to see some progress on it. No one should
*need* to order Debian developers to follow copyright law in their
Debian work; it should be the default. Plus, I'd rather Nathanael do it
than the US government. (I also found his tone civil, if curt.)

It's not even a request to remove it, just one asking for some
indication on what kind of schedule or plans are going on, and *an offer
for help*.
