I believe I'm already good to go.  A few years back when I contributed
some code to emacs' lread.c, RMS had me sign and send the letter that
legally enabled FSF to include it.  IIUC, that step only has to be
done once for any code contributor.

OK, sounds good.  And makes it a bit easier to test.

Here it would also distinguish chosenness from the other
interpretations, but that would be entirely inside org-decisions.el.

OK.

Right.  I had already planned to let the hooks to nil; I will do the
same for the time stamp and note recording variables.

Thanks for the advice.  I will code it up and send it.
