So-called "Enterprise" infrastructure has delayed the work of this group
for at least a year. Noone of the people creating that mess has reached
out to this group to explain why they constantly break TLS - let alone
apologize for it.

I believe there's a large overlap of the actors breaking TLS with the
actors who are worried about things like SNI encryption. I'm not sure I
see any reason not to consider these actors as anything but opposed to
the work of this group.
