Well, apparently there have been some clashes between the KDE League and
the FT company. But since the KDE League doesn't represent KDE, I don't
think that can count as argument as long as the reasons are disclosed - even
if done for legal reasons.

This kind of secrecy is the exact thing that some people dislike(d) about
the League.. a project like KDE shouldn't have to place its trust in a group
of insiders. Regardless of whether those insiders are right or not.
