A small executable that pretends to be the MS server, authorizing whatever bullshittery the game needs it to. This would keep games without an active publisher/developer from being completely cut out. Now, it won't fix multiplayer issues, but it'd at least be a solution for being able to play games SP.
Such a solution would also involve messing around with your computer's hosts file to redirect requests from MS's servers to localhost... If that's the case then you just might as well get proper game cracks that would not require gfwl at all.
