Frankly we are not interested in this in here. We are concerned by network
and network technology neutrality and best user interests. All this is to
try to defensively balkanize the net. Please, let discuss our common bits,
not the others' sins. Technical standards are not supposed to govern the
world, democratically elected government are. We are not interested in
protecting merchant interests and processes, but protocols and people.

My 3 cents.
