In the part of the message you removed, I explained why I think
certain common dedications (such as to people involved in your
historical connection with the subject) are explicitly allowed
in invariant sections.  Therefore, it's not proven any more
than a claim that *you* haven't read the FDL. If one cares
about formal proof enough to use QED, please explain the steps.

Also, I feel accusing someone of reading while on crack cocaine is a
personal attack, even if it was (lame IMO) humour. Would you enjoy
that accusation being made of you? Please consider apologising.

In hope,
