I'm actually not seeing much in the way of contradiction in discussion
of the policy.

The letter seems to be: Apache projects don't import and incorporate
code without the owners' consent.  License to use is not synonymous
with consent to import.

The spirit seems to be: It is terminally rude to try to form an Apache
project by ripping up an existing community without its consent.

Most of the Apache people commenting here seem to agree on these
things.  Most of the argument on this thread seems to have been about
whether or not they apply to Bloodhound.  Bloodhound notwithstanding,
there's probably enough practical clarification here to put up on a
page somewhere, with a link from the main policy page saying, "For a
discussion of the issues, click here."

But perhaps I'm naive.
