Hi, Renoir–

Couldn't we simply replace those links with links to our own existing 
policy documents [1]? I think that's a simpler solution, with less 
maintenance, than reproducing our policy documents in another repo.

If the scope of our policy documents doesn't cover the specific use you 
have in mind, we can expand our policies through the proper channels 
(e.g., get lawyers involved).

You should feel free to focus on the technical aspects of getting FXA 
working. Thanks for thinking ahead about what's needed from a policy 
perspective and bringing it to the community.
