the actions of W3C to snow ball RAND by the technical community is
attrocious and wrong. It is my sincere hope this proposal is rejected as
it will hurt the growth and development of the internet. Without royalty
free standards, dedicated programs will be hindered in their efforts to
explore new standards and technologies.

It is of no benefit to commercial software industry, as each corporation
has it's own interests and will cause more disagreements. Introducing
RAND into the standard process will change the focus on creating the
best standard, to how to create profitable standards.

sincerely,

peter lin
