My understanding of US copyright law is the same. No disclaimer
needed since I'm a US citizen. So you can consider anything I say
to be legal advice. (My interpretation of this funny "disclaimer"
thing. Kill all the Sophists! )

Definitely. I would strongly encourage it. Any differences of
opinion can usually be worked out aforehand. An aside: I also had
some positive conversations with employees of ICE on the
feasability of my mud. :) And Oh what a glum lot the TSR booth was.
