Dear W3c,

I wish to add my name to the chorus of independent software developers who
oppose any attempt to substitute any form of commercial licensing for the
free and open licensing that currently constitutes W3C standards.

And I wish to express my astonishment and incipient anger at the way this
proposal has come to light broadly on the Internet--on the very day of the
expriry of the open comment period.  How is it that happened, hmm?

Shame on you, W3C.

Matt
