        I'll make this short. Like the subject says, the idea of your
organisation endorsing 'standards' that are not free for all to use is
terrible. It's a contradiction of some of the earliest ideals of the WWW,
ideals I thought your group held dear. Thanks to this, the way to a
'publicly endorsed' proprietary internet is paved. You've betrayed us
all.
