I do not belong to those who think that the W3C management does not
"understand the issues". I am convinced that the opposite is true and
that they are fully aware that the W3C with EME is on a confrontation
course with the Open Source community. Otherwise the policy stated in
the "World Wide Web Consortium Process Document" would not have been
violated (by ignoring all fundamental objections).

Let me take this opportunity to point out that according to the same
paragraph of the "World Wide Web Consortium Process Document" all
"legitimate views and objections" by others such as "a group in another
organization, or the general public" also have to be considered (see below).


"Consensus is a core value of W3C. To promote consensus, the W3C process
requires Chairs to ensure that groups consider all legitimate views and
objections, and endeavor to resolve them, whether these views and
objections are expressed by the active participants of the group or by
others (e.g., another W3C group, a group in another organization, or the
general public). Decisions MAY be made during meetings (face-to-face or
distributed) as well as through email. Note: The Director, W3C Chair,
and COO have the role of assessing consensus within the Advisory Committee."
