No, I'm pretty sure you're the only one harping on /that/ point.  None of
the GR proposals mandate a particular interpretation of the legality of any
component of the archive, the release team has never indicated that they
intended to ignore legal problems when releasing, and popular vote is a
stupid way to decide questions of law.
