Changes to the OSD to make it less restrictive are not on the table.
Discussion of what those non-existent changes should be is a waste of
list participants time.

List members have been gently trying to clue you in.  I'll be less
gentle because you haven't been listening to them.  If you do not
voluntarily shut up on this topic, I'll shut you up.  Make your own
mailing list to talk about a new certification mark.  Announce it
here, by all means.  But don't think you can hijack this mailing list
to advance an agenda which is off-topic for this list.
