Because a large proportion of my contributions, and most of my interest is in
this area.


No one wants to lose your effort on the ARM port. For the most part
you are the ARM port. Have you talked to an IP or contract lawyer
about the issue? There's your liability and another issue is liability
for the project or copyright issues. It is interesting to know how far
both go and how they relate.  To my mind this just seems pretty
murkey. Yes the best solution would be a pass from ARM but everyone
knows that isn't going to happen.
