Can nobody stop the URAA Copyright trolls mass deleting perfect fine files
on Commons?

I think it would be the best if _all_ URAA affected files would be kept
until a DMCA take down notice.

But in the case of in the country of origin PD works which are foreign
government works it is needed that the WMF clearly speaks out that such
works could be accepted on Commons even when a written statement of the
foreign government doesn't exist.

See for Canada's crown copyright
