You might have to live with the fact that at least EvilSeph + Wolvereness attempted to kill Bukkit/CraftBukkit, while Mojang did not. The legal situation for continuation of modding will always be problematic no matter what technique you apply. Mojang can alter the client at any time, change the EULA, rename the game, and kill off future modding. One thing is sure, by killing Bukkit or attempting to, you certainly don't rescue other people from anything. So far the opposite has happened - people rely on a system grown by real community effort in the past, and a couple of people with some idea about what's the case and what not try to kill it off. I seriously doubt that any modders are in danger legally, provided that Mojang is tolerating the project, so there remains little to back you up there, about the future aspect i have commented already. It's just a very egocentric attempt to end the world, be prepared for resistance .
