Actually big companies are more complex than that ... while I do not know 
anything about HP's level of interest in any part of CSS, it is easily 
conceivable to me that the HP rep on the CSS group is a printer person, and 
may not even know of people for whom the speech module is relevant - 
doesn't mean they don't exist - simply that while formally represented, in 
practice they are not. Personally, I would be surprised if there was noone 
in HP who cared about speech CSS module.

I'm HP's rep in a number of SW WGs - while I try and find out what HP 
people outside my immediate group want it is an uphill struggle, most of 
the time the 'HP position' that I represent was worked out over a coffee by 
three or four people, (and it's only on the few more important issues that 
we bother to do that).
