Dear W3C members,

I consider the move towards clinching protocol, and process models of
protocol under patents to be a very sad development.

It's not unknown that the "corporation" as an entity has a very, very low
quotient of intelligence, even while the corporation is membered by people
of brilliance.

Personally, my internal reaction to this is strong enough to prompt me to
begin discussion of a dismantling of the control of the W3C to the formative
structure of information technologies.

Perhaps the day of glory for the W3C has past, as the W3C now seems to have
been purchased by a very stupid corporate intelligence.

Please consider your position of value to be deteriorating.  I propose you
each return to the essence of reasoning, speak loudly and strongly against
normalization of protocol into profit.
