At least to me, it was never really about a format war even though we
get pulled into that discussion pretty quickly.

It was always about freedom of expression, free culture,
decentralisation, interoperability, access,... in scholarly
communication at least within or starting with the SW community.

That is precisely why https://linkedresearch.org/ organically emerged.
Linked Research *is* a proposed paradigm, and it is not confined to
publishing articles. Some even mistaken that it is just an HTML thing.
LR works on a layer higher. It doesn't claim to have all the answers nor
does it dictate exactly which technology should be used for everyone. It
is an open call to move things forward. See the acid tests etc..
