Certainly.  My point regarding the legal problems is that
unless my understanding of the legal issues is incorrect,
then we should not (as I think some have suggested) spend
too much effort trying to make nice "bridges" to ease 
people away from those services.   It would be fantastic
to do so to make the transition easier for users but
those services appear to throw legal obstacles in the way
of exactly such a plan.
