OK, my mistake... guess we *aren't* all agreed on the need to fix on  
a single standard reference system.  Personally, I think we do, if  
only in order to keep  things simple for implementers.  Otherwise  
we're going to have only local rather than global interoperability of  
CAP messages.

What we're not getting here is a sense of proportion.  Is this a  
serious and widespread problem or just a few folks' personal  
theoretical axe?  I really can't tell... although I'll note again  
that none of these complaints seem to come from folks who've actually  
deployed implementations.
