I'd like to address just this part, speaking only for myself.

The LF is not in the position of arbitrating anything here. The body
charged with that is the LF Technical Advisory Board, which is a
different thing. It's currently this motley crowd:

I think most of us would agree that those folks lack the desire to go
around harassing developers, and they lack the time to do so in any
case.

The TAB is chosen by a vote of developers at the kernel summit; that will
happen in Vancouver in November.
