Ahmmm. They need to get their facts straight. The locality principle has
nothing to do with the equivalence principle. The locality principle is
the principle that the speed of light is a fundamental limiting speed.
The equivalence principle is the equivalence of inertial and
gravitational mass, i.e. all objects in the same gravitational field
fall with the same velocity.
In plain English, the above is referring to the apparent communication
of signals greater then the speed of light.

I doubt it as you have the basics wrong.

The Schroedingers cat dilemma, isn't. It was simple a misapplication of
QM when QM first came about. A *correct* interpretation of QM does not
require a cat two be in two states at once.
