So far I have not seen this "W3C management's definition" in writing. There are
still people who erroneously think that the term "open" used by the W3C implies
that W3C "open" standards can be implemented as Open Source. It would help to
have such a definition in a form which avoids such misunderstandings.

I was not aware that Tim Berners-Lee had *already decided* that his final
acceptance of EME will *not* depend on whether it can be implemented as Open
Source. Thanks for that important clarification. I trust that you do not
misrepresent his position.
