Another email from my senior contact in Amazon (received 5 minutes ago):

"I've read and reviewed your recent email with the appropriate department regarding our review policies, potential notification of reviewers and our review removal policies. They have taken this information for review. Any changes or actions that are a result would be posted on our website."

This is regarding the long email reply I sent him (above), where I suggested a better way to do things if they make changes to policies/guidelines.

so...all is good now.
