The context is a representative of Sun emailing debian-legal, and 
someone appearing to speak on behalf of Debian emailing him back. The 
DPL chose to clarify that Walter was not in a position to speak on 
behalf of Debian, presumably because he felt that there had been 
potential for confusion. Does that seem unreasonable?
