1. LibreOffice Online - Unsupported Warning
I don't have much to add to the explanation on the page:
AFAIK believe TDF is obliged to educate users, telling them
not to do silly things is perhaps wise.
2. LibreOffice Online - Containing Support Keys
Looking through the source code of LibreOffice Online, it can be easily
found, that there is a build option for support keys, this makes
absolutely no sense in our software product.

software that are of no use for the intended audience.**
Arguably there is quite a lot of useless features in the
software =) if we apply this widely it could take a very long time.
This feature is disabled even in most of our C'bra product
builds but is in some. Why ? We sell support & services based on the
number of users, and by baking a public key into the code we can
then sign a 'key' that tweaks that limit per customer; that shares
the binary across many customers. Mostly though we do trust-based
C'bra wrote that code and published and included it - I believe
CIB has used it too, others are welcome to if they find that useful.
I imagine it's no different from innumerable other OSS support activation
keys in software.
Is your concern that TDF hosts the bits? Or is it your concern
that the ecosystem sells support and services on a per-user basis ? or ?
Generally as a development team we've had rather a friendly and
open view to including random features that are only of minority
usefulness - from Haiki OS support, to configure options to bundle
proprietary templates and so on. The more FLOSS the better.
Would be good to have more precision on this concern,
