Since Reputations are personal, the only person that could be affected by cancelling a project is you. It's less of a concern in that case, but that doesn't change the fact that it's a fundamental alteration of the software.

No, the items are destroyed/discarded/gone-forever at the moment you hit Contribute, and are converted into a simple numeric that tracks how many items have been contributed to that particular "bucket" of goods. As such, cancelling a project would refund you nothing, other than freeing up the project slot.
Yet, it would be great to have a "cancel" option upon project. For example, our fleet is suffering with a project, like the OP has, that is bugged. Sadly, after that each fleet member (+400 members) has filed in a bug report, that project is still up and blocking our progress as fleet.

Now, a cancel option would have our fleet "owner" given the opportunity to remove that bugged project, instead of becoming such frustrated that he voiced his opinion upon this boards in such way that he got banned from it. Sad to say, but that is the result of the incompetence from your side.
