It's not so much that. They want the spec to work (and it does) but  
said spec is up against proprietary, non-RF, either non-standard or  
standardised by rubber-stamping what one company does (no matter how  
bad it is), and it is deemed better to have a spec out there to beat  
those other options even if it means that it may have a few bugs (but  
again, this draft is *much* better than the previous one) rather than  
try to get a perfect spec long after the market has been overtaken by  
crap alternatives.
