I have always relied on W3C as the standards bearer and moderator of private
vendor interests, and presenting a unified and reasonable front to emerging
standards.

With RAND, it would be a total antithesis to the concept of W3C, and would
diminish the spirit of the Internet. If this is to implemented, developers
would drop off W3C, and the media would condemn this as a vested interest
group with an agenda to sell.
