If some body or a group of people are really serious about an issue that arises from this they can take eBay to court for the EULA itself. If I bury a line in my product EULA that I have the right kill all users and (even) 1% miss it and accept the EULA it doesn't mean it can stand in a court of law.

Everything from new products that are scratched months later to dropping the + operator point to redundant internal meetings just for the sake of it.
