[DJW:]  However, my impression is that that only holds
whilst the implementation is in the open source arena.
Closed source developers tend to be the ones that create
the greatest travesties of open standards, so it is possibly
not surprising that the same people are wary of creating
open standards - they may be judging other people by
their own standards.
