That seems a particularly counter-productive strawman to pursue.
There is no community dismissal of the need for good CC mechanisms.
There is no reduction in community review of proposals. There is no
leverage to force the community to deploy bad CC mechanisms.
Stray comments from stray individuals do not create a problem. Unless
we let them distract us.
So please don't start believing that we have any more danger of
deploying bad mechanisms now than we've had for the last 40 years.
