Regardless of whether some individual IETFers think it's a problem,
if we got into a situation where the US or EU were sending us subpoenas
or asking detailed questions about our practices and looking for
suspicious comments in the mailing lists, it would be a problem for
everyone, no matter where you live or who you work for.

I agree that a minor update to the Note Well seems like a reasonable approach.
