Crimes against the Mantle is a forerunner juridical expression that applies only to forerunner citizens. And as forerunner misunderstood the Mantle it is quite irrelevant. Humans have their own laws and ONI violates those too!
I'm not sure how you can think S-II is a crime against the Mantle, however it would be a curious legal case, given that it's the result of the Librarian's geas.
I want to remember that while osman and parangosky's actions are opposite to that, all the other reclamation stuff comes from ONI, think about it. known reclaimers are john, halsey, anders... All we know about forerunners and reclamation comes from ONI studies. Wouldn't it be for ONI we wouldn't even know about the reclamation, the precursors and the forerunner.
Eradicating ONI is idiot, just have to let parangosky die, or help her if needed, and kill Osman.
And precursors... they are the biggest threat considering the flood damnation/test fact.
