Oh, I make no such claim.  I was simply observing that
the current appeal is carefully worded so it does
NOT ask those involved in OpenDocument to
stop working on it.  Some people might not
notice the careful wording. The appeal DOES ask them to appeal
to OASIS (which I suspect many of them are doing already).

Thanks for the compliment, but I'm not an author.
I've read and commented on it, but as a reviewer,
not as an author.
