As DCO is something we'd need to present to the court when the next
SCO comes after us, we'd prefer to see that we can refer to, and
contact if necessary, a real person when we need to say "this is not
a stolen code, here is the person who presented it to us and we'll
let him or her explain".

Not limited to this, but our stance for things are that previous
mistakes do not justify repeating and spreading the same.
