You said it better than I can

"Both the competitive forces which have lead to innovative technology, and
the cooperative spirit which has produced global interoperability standards
at an extremely rapid pace have occurred, until very recently, in a market
environment without any significant intellectual property licensing

That is EXACTLY WHY innovation & interoperability did occur  that fast.

Please consider that the RAND proposal does nothing for the benefit of the
web user.
