To Whom It May Concern.

Cybersource has shown over 10 years of strong support for open and
interoperable Internet and World-Wide Web standards. 

We _vehemently_ oppose the introduction of any framework which seeks to
introduce patented-technology into core protocols and standards.

We believe this will lead to a substantial destabilisation of
international standards-bodies, such as the W3C, and the likely
balkanisation of the Web. For the continued success and health of the
Internet, this must be avoided at all costs.
