Dear Sirs,

I want to express my serious disappoitment caused due to the RAND
project.

As an academic teacher with over 25 years of experience I am sure, that
introduce of any loyalty fees for standards used (both in non-commercial
as in commercial activity) is the really bad move and can caused in
result lack of standarisation.

W3C should have a leading role in implementing REAL standards - not
propertiary standards (it is not important, who claim itself as a
"standard owner").
Introduce of RAND will cause following:

1. Difficulties in communication in the net,
2. Open Source community, which is not controlled by anybody will
introduce new standard (they have enough power to do it using bazar
model of development).

I have a hope, that proposed project will be rejected immediately and
unconditionally and similar "ideas" will be forgotten!

Sincerely Yours

Tomasz Barbaszewski, Ph.D.
