Not a very good approach to addressing issues in general though, is it? 
"If you don't like what's there, then use something else?" How are we, 
as an industry, expected to try to standardize on things if we can't 
discuss them in an open and honest manner? If we follow your question 
to its logical conclusion, then let's close this working group now so 
we can all get on with other things.
