Since this is a significant issue with a major impact on many TLPs, I
think it would be useful to have a board resolution that clarifies the
issue and what should be done about it. Anyone willing to draft one?

I'd also like to see a wider discussion about this, involving at least
legal, infra, and the affected TLPs. What should be done about past
releases? How does this affect documentation under etc. Anyone willing to drive this?
