I am surprised that MS or their minions at SCO haven't twigged to the
following scheme"

They could 'set-up' Open Source by masquerading as some student
in netland and submit some provably proprietary code as original.

Six months later, MS sues Linus for malfeasance with the vigorous
support of Homeland Security ... 

Of course, conspiracies never succeed for long. Some small fish
would rat them out.
