I hope you are being silly. As long as THIS Foundation is here and, as long
as it is THIS Foundation who deals with a legal threat you will have to deal
with THIS Foundation. The philosophical possibility that you have to deal
with a later organisation later does not deal with the reality of today.

When you disagree, you disagree with the whole notion of office actions,
when you disagree because of a philosophical reason, you are producing noise
distracting from what is the issue.

It has to be clear that for as long as Wikipedia is a Wikimedia Foundation
project, Office actions are compulsory. The removal of content is in essence
a necessary step in a process. When this process has run its course, the
same data may be back depending on the outcome of the legal process.
