I do not imply, continuous mouse is a borg feature. Fact is it is a 
questionable feature, where people have different opinion on whether it is 
borgish or not.

And COW policy is that it is a client out of any questions. So that's why we 
introduced the feature packets, to let the server GOD decide what he thinks 
is borgish or not.

To be pragmatic, for a questionable feature like this, we should not react so 
hard to remove the keys imediatly, but we should fix it to eliminate any 
possible doubt for future. Lateron we still may decide on removing the old 

So the better way is to convince the server GODs to turn the feature on, on 
the server.
