What utter nonsense.  Sam provided a link to the evidence that the text
is bad.  There was no reason for him to repeat the same arguments again.
The only embarrassment here is your childish disregard of every decision
made by this group.  What is the point of having a consensus-driven standard
if every decision that the dictator doesn't like is casually disregarded 
and supplanted by a private copy of the same spec?
