Tht would require three things:
1) Microsoft reversing their previous position
of encouraging use of the CIFS protocol,
and it's standardization by the IETF,
2) establishing or interpreting portions of
the protocol as "anti-circumvention"
3) commencement of a suit against a team
they have in the past supported, including
flying members to the first SMB conferences.
