You're entitled to your model, but I'm not entitled to mine?  Well, of
course, neither of us is entitled to anything.

But to the point: No, I will not.

I will continue to push for and accept only RF-or-nothing, as will
many [most?] of the individuals actually contributing the work.  This
is non-negotiable with respect to many of our participation.  That's
not an ultimatum, it's a statement of fact (and part of Xiph's
corporate charter; we must pull out if we ourselves cannot deploy it.)

Others are welcome to bring the proceedings to a crashing halt if they
so desire, and set up a nice, tightly controlled little proprietary
sandbox where no one 'unapproved' is able to contribute, and we'll see
how far that goes.  Pity, there was already so much completed work.

The Web was invented many times.  No one cared until one came along
that was Free.  Lather, rinse, repeat.
