As an adjective, I'd say I meant both definition 2 and 3. I would stand by that assertion. Furthermore, you could say that such a statement as the thread title dose definition 5 to human rights.moot
open to discussion or debate; debatable; doubtful: a moot point.
of little or no practical value or meaning; purely academic.
Chiefly Law. not actual; theoretical; hypothetical.
verb (used with object)
to present or introduce (any point, subject, project, etc.) for discussion.
to reduce or remove the practical significance of; make purely theoretical or academic.
Archaic. to argue (a case), especially in a mock court.
Since there is no particular reason to decide that only definition 1 is valid (and why not decide that only definition 6 is valid?), any disagreement over this would be, I assume, not a linguistic one but a practical one over the implication of such a philosophy (which is probably what we should be talking about, anyhow).
