Sorry if that came off as snarky. It was a roundabout -- albeit poor -- way
of inferring if this might perhaps be a starting point in time to inquire
about LoC plans or if there are perhaps other considerations about giving
researchers a bit more access to data than has been available (to me, it
seems like that might have been suggested in the "all" and "don't share
datasets" phrasing).
