I personally would be satisfied with the original "bare" OABI binary, 
i.e. one that I could run if I rolled back my rootfs to a 2007.1 image. 
I also don't need any of the "Assisted" GPS features yet (i.e. the 
orbit-prediction data from Global Locate); all I want is to be able to 
take my phone outside and get a position fix.

Is there any chance of convincing your lawyers to let you release an 
"as-is" version of the binary under the same sort of "developers only, 
you have been warned" disclaimer that we had to accept when we purchased 
the GTA01 hardware?
