Oxymoron.  "promissory estoppel" means that a good faith interpretation
implies a permission while there is none, "unenforceable" means that a
good faith interpretation implies a restriction while there is none.

Your brain is leaking out of both ears.  At one point of time, you'll
need to decide in which of those opposite directions you want to troll.
