Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should a fee based proccess be considered as a 
standard. If a compnay that has the TM/PAtent/IP of the standard could make 
it available royalty free so be it, but to force the industry to pay homage 
to aparticular vendor is sillyt, and I can point to 1394 as a perfect 
example. It is a MUCH BETTER standard but has failed to be implemented due 
to licensing charges. Onbly a SONY or APPLE machine will come with 1394 
native, and the rest of the insudtry is STILL USING USB, a MUCH SLOWER but 
FREE standard.

Life is a waste of time, time is a waste of life, so get  wasted all of the 
time and have the time of your life.
