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.
So, is this a sort of confession of "yeah, we WERE going to look into it, but we decided against it?"

It would be nice to cancel a project en lieu of another, even without getting anything back. For example, I have been leaving things "blank" (i.e., not putting another project in the queue) so when a Tier opens, we can start things previously unavailable, but a lot of my Fleet members want "things to build." Personally, I don't want to waste resources - you guys do KNOW some of these costs are WAY too high, don't you? (rhetorical) - on a project that really doesn't get us anywhere. It would be nice to swap something out if we wanted to; just sayin.'
