[Bitcoin-segwit2x] PROPOSAL: B0RG (Bitcoin zero replay guarantee) - Ensuring a smooth 2X upgrade without a chain split

WRONG. The exchanges are speculating that there will be 2 coins, quite distinct from 2 chains let alone 2 viable chains, whereas it is the intent of the NYA WG (thus btc1 client) not to split the network.
In-fact the overwhelming majority of the community concede that the minority chain (should there be a viable one post Nov HF) MUST implement RP otherwise they will expose their users to the risk of losses and themselves to risks of recourse.

All of the exchanges and the community have conceded that this fork will result in two coins. They all decided to name the new one B2X.

There is no longer any reason to entertain the illusion of everyone migrating, thus you are obligated to include strong replay protection at this point. Otherwise you are choosing to be hostile and if you cause loss, you may expose yourself to risks or recourse.

Thank you for understanding, I look forward to everyone playing nicely together, as appropriate.

Can this proposal be done using merged mining?

As far as I can see, only by hard forking btc1 once more.  The B0RG proposal has the advantage of being just a soft fork.
