Dear Sirs,

My humble comments.

Surely you must realise that any standard which circumvents a free-world 
policy in favour of endosing any technologies or standards which are 
based on a patented or paid for model is an extremely bad idea.

You also must realise that any standard encompassing a patented 
technology which may be free today, may not necessary be free tomorrow.

As guardians of the web, and indeed the free communicating world, those 
alive and those as yet unborn have entrusted you to propose solutions 
which will ensure the progress of the human race as a whole both today 
and for a much further future.

Yours faithfully,

Justin Daw
