Thank you for moving the debate back to sound technical and
philosophical issues, Zdeněk;  so if the TeX Live installer
were to simply report "I have been run", and if the
collating server were configured to record the report and
date/time, but not the IP address from which the report
originated, would you regard that as acceptable ?
