Dear W3C,

I read your arguments for RAND and think, that it is a stupid idea. It 
can't happen, that the Web-users have to pay for simple usage of open 
standards.

In the long run you can destroy the homogenous internet with that 
strategy – many users and makers will oppose to that policy and develop 
their own open standards based on the actual standards.

Regards
