With all due respect -- it should be the "why 'color'" guy who should be credited with any seeds sown in this strange matter.

I would be very happy for them to advise on what we must do.
And on what we must not do.  And even on what we should do
in order to minimise the risk of legal action at some
point in the future.  But, with all due respect to the legal
profession, I would not want to seek their advice on what
we /could/ do in order to make the web a better, more inclusive,
place.  That is for all of us to consider, and all I have
been doing is making one simple suggestion as to how we
might be able to do that, within a very small and
restricted universe of discourse.  Having sown the seed,
I am now happy to leave it alone and see if it germinates.
