Hi Rigo - 

I'm not sure the fact that you're referring to a law as stupid (as opposed
to the body creating the law) makes your comments any more appropriate.
And I may not have made this clear enough, but its not a law - rather, its
a non-legal code of conduct.

Jeff and others have made repeated requests for industry to share
specifics on how industry operates. Its sort of frustrating that my
attempts to provide an example have been met with such ridicule.

But its also unproductive for us to continue sniping on this issue. My
apologies to the rest of the WG for contributing to the pollution of your
inboxes - this is the last you'll hear from me on this subject.

Nick, I'll get back to you re: your email in the next day or so.
