Brian,

let be candid. The text of Bernard Adoba (Microsoft) is 100% in line with
the Microsoft political line broadly publish under cover of Human Rights as
the Global Network Initiative (http://www.globalnetworkinitiative.org/).
Since the co-founder/influencer of GNI is Google (with Yahoo!) also with
Microsoft a jewell member of ISOC, and that Russ Housley is security
specialist involved in the IEEE, this text, its signatoree and first
supporter were quickly identified in the political world as a confirmation
that the IAB is (now the IETF is an affiliate of ISOC) politically and
could therefore most probably technically be biaised in favor of the
interest of the US industry dominants club.

Obviously, in political situation nothing is first degree. So, the question
is why M$, Google, IBM, Yahoo!, Oracle etc. are exposing the credibility of
the IETF credibility a
