By all means, I think you should. I've got a comprehensive article in the
works for publication on John Allsop's Web Directions
(http://www.webdirections.org) out of Sydney, Australia. Like you, I'm
hoping to clear up some of the fog. John's very well known and respected
(for good reason) in the Web Standards community where, I think, it's
important to connect. 

Cheers,

rich

I thought that was a mix of great and clear writing, failure to apply
the same analysis to parallel proposals, and some "information" that
is simply untrue.

I'm considering doing a big writeup on this stuff to summarize what
people in different groups need to know (web designers, font vendors),
where things are at today, and the viewpoints of the different players
(font vendors, browser vendors, web designers/developers).

Cheers,
