You said in the same message that Adobe leaves the
possibility of a TTF/OTF requirement on the table.
You say it is not Adobe's favorite outcome but is
one Adobe can live with.

What is in question is the motives of those who
declare that under no circumstances is a TTF/OTF
requirement acceptable.

You've no need to defend your motives in that dialog.
You are not the ones being questioned since you leave
TTF/OTF on the table!
