Oh maybe one one of the names you took will free up then. :-)

Sure I got that.  And currently CIDER is strongly coupled to
implementation details of clojure-mode.  So for your plans to take
place, this will require outlining the existing informal API between
the two realities: major mode and CIDER overlay minor mode.  This
will be a good thing in itself, and hopefully it will allow other
Clojure major modes to take advantage of CIDER.

I clearly wrote about integrating with CIDER, not rewriting it.
So, again, you're really reading things that I didn't write.

Let's see, you wrote in your many recent messages, just as an example:

Then you said it's "funny" that my ideas -- which you totally misread
-- are starting from some naive position that you already faced
15 years ago.  Then you talk about your "big organization of people"
and your track record, that there's only two Clojure programmers in
this conversation, that we're not "subject experts".  Instead of
technical arguments, you drop videos of your presentations on youtube
and links to your blog posts.

If all this is not a paternalistic attempt at dissuasion, it's at
least odd from someone who's already said he's not interested
in contributing to this endeavor, and who's not really being
asked to anymore.

A good way to help solve your problem would be to contribute it to
GNU Emacs.  I wouldn't expect to become experts overnight, but we'd
do our best.
