All you'd achieve there is moving the misrepresentation there back a
step— about OTR in total instead of 'no logs mode'— and make it even
less true (because while I'd not modify a no-logs mode, I'd certainly
modify it as a blanket 'feature') and at the same time cause other
people to avoid using OTR. This is not a victory.
