I have similar stories to tell. In certain circumstances, employers
push on employees' shoulders. Even if it's possible in the TAG, I think
the structure of the TAG makes it almost impossible for such employers
to impose a view that is not consensual anyway. And it's considerably
harder in public www-tag.

I can't address a problem I don't see. We have two entirely different
perspectives: you assume an issue is probable and take 'a priori'
counter-measures that I find too heavy. I assume the issue is highly
unprobable or at least easily contained and I prefer 'a posteriori'
measures to 'a priori' counter-measures, and you find that too light.

I trust Tim and TAG Co-chairs to shut down any attempt by a vendor to
impose undesirable views to the whole TAG. You prefer representativity 

These are two irreconciliable views, I guess.
