The goal of having a set of guide lines is to keep this project free of
pointless distracting debates, which aren't part of the topic of making
open silicon without back doors from intelligence agencies.
I think that as soon as we're going to make progress, this will be something,
we WILL have to fend of, so we better prepare sooner than later, because
experience shows that "dividi et imperam" is a common tactics used those days
in the age of informational warfare to slow down and neutralize potentially
dangerous groups... and a group developing the means to decentralize the
manufacturing and close all potential back doors for mass surveillance,
is certainly on the list of the five edged war factory :-)
