Which part of ‘Apple is not even the largest single contributor’ did you not 
understand?  If Apple stopped contributing to LLVM and Clang then:

- The effect on the overall community would be noticeable, but not 
insurmountable.

- The effect on Apple would be huge because maintaining a fork of LLVM / Clang 
is hugely expensive if you want to be able to take upstream changes

Please stop spreading FUD.  The LLVM ecosystem has several dozen large 
corporate stakeholders as well as hundreds of individual contributors.
