: I did have a discussion with GeneB this week who's taking over compliance related matters from cmeyers. He did mention there were risks associated with using undocumented API’s in future releases from those that have previously been granted exception under security clause of the settlement agreement.

-
: The recommendation is to not use undocumented api’s or to document the apis. We can’t document this particular API, the WFP api, since it’s a back door to WFP and that means anyone could effectively bypass WFP. (say with a virus or a Trojan app) ..

To discuss Linda’s questions with you:
+
* [[Redocumenting the undocumented shell extensions]]
-
: Re SPAD: .. The risk is at some point in the future a 3rd party could register for the shell task and when set wrap as the "default" player via SPAD we don’t re-register for the shell task feature. Really this is not a violation of the agreement but it means we are not being as aggressive about re-asserting as the default handler ..
