A question for the dev team

Would there ever be the possibility of our Dev team reaching out and opening a line of communication with third party client developers? As a classic client user who knows full well that our developers have little to no intention nor desire to update or even fix the problems of our antiquated client, be it the restraints of time or scheduling or whatever. There is some very top end talent out there who has taken the initiative to develop a modernized client for the classic client files, in a way many of us had hoped the EC would have looked like when it was released.
I intimately understand the problems that are associated with these clients and their respective loaders in the form of scripting and automation. But the functions that those clients utilize can be filtered with the development of a handshake protocol (negotiations feature) that already exists and is implemented on the (and don't ban me now) free servers.
I believe if our development team were able to sit down with devs of say **** or the **** client that together they could work on something of this degree that could only be beneficial for the rest of the game, imagine reaching an agreement that opens the rest of the game up to a legal third party client that not only looks absolutely stunning, but also finally being able to properly police and regulate certain scripted and automative features that should be left on the (again I'm gonna say the words and please don't ban me lol) free servers that desire to use them.

Just allow us to use 3rd party UIs and Assists programs as long as we are there, no multibox or AFK auto programs. We are getting old and slow, we need help.
Are you not entertained..
What I think about all these illegal clients is Mesanna and her team is so small, and they have little time to work on upgrading UOassist, they can't also just ban all these clients because the subscriptions would drop so much because players got used to them, that EA could possibly just shut down the game if it was to reach a critical state and Mesanna must be scared of that. She says in one live dev meeting that there always going to have players that need to cheat to have the win and nothing can be done, and that she trying to make everything 'fair' for everyone so these client do not give too much of an advantage, but honestly I haven't seen a single change ever on handling these clients, so what are they trying? I think they have no clue of the actual advantages these clients offer.
Here's the exact part in the live meeting (1hour 11min 35 sec mark) where Mesanna talks about illegal clients, I hardly believe that nothing can be done, every action you perform ingame on any client, send out packets information with an official signature where only UOassist and OSI are legally authorized, it should be rather easy to detect if someone is performing actions or logging in from an illegal client.
But I've already said to much if you want the truth look for me in the 3rd dark alley behind Brit bank...
