Everyone believes you. You don't need to post personal e-mails to prove it. Demonstrating that the author has abandoned it will not change how anyone feels about UNIF. We already know. It's quite frankly a rather unimportant detail.
The emergence of iNES 2 as a replacement is a much more important detail. We have the means to start assigning the remaining UNIF-only boards and moving on to that, but doing this requires taking an interest in UNIF and doing the hard work to make it happen, and improving the documentation will help with this. Simply telling people not to use or implement UNIF is especially pointless when there isn't an alternative yet. There's a process in place to get it done, but it's not done yet. Even if we did have iNES 2 assignment and available .NES rips, it's still their call whether they want to support UNIF in their emulator.
