Yes, I have.  At the risk of sounding like a troll, at this point I will 
ask you to remove your tinfoil hat so that some of the replies you will 
get might actually penterate.  I am not going to bother addressing each 
one of your points - you're obviously far too paranoid with far too much 
time on your hands.

MythTV does not have much to do with obtaining programming data.  With 
the exception of datadirect (which was written in because it was 
convenient for people to use) all guide data is obtained through 
grabbers written using the XMLTV wrapper.  *Anyone* can write an XMLTV 
grabber if they want - the only "restriction" is whether there is a 
place you can get data for you area area.
