I think, as with all copyright things, we need to proceed with diligence 
but not with perfection. The bot is already much more clever than most 
project members assume it to be, and considers many more cases than we 
expected even a few months ago. It is, in my opinion, diligent enough 
and we should not get carried away with adding ever more special cases.

If people later complain about individual decisions of the bot then that 
can be fixed manually; if a systemic error should be discovered later, 
even that can be fixed.

The one thing that we must not do is make reckless decisions, and I 
think that by now there have been enough eyeballs on the code to ensure 
that there's nothing reckless in there.
