I don't think we're discarding the policy.

David is prevented from making any more commits that contradict this
policy (as he left, but otherwise I would have asked for a vote to
revoke his commit rights as suggested on the legal-disccus list), and
we are treating the remaining copyright notices in the same way as
we'd do for a committer that is no longer available (for any reason)
to fix them themselves.

Clarifying that we'd revoke people's commit rights if they refuse to
abide by the policy that we're talking about
( has been a positive
outcome of this saga, IMHO.
