Lets take a look at the issue from the other side, for a moment, please.
For the last 5 months several people on this list have worked hard to make 
the lists proposal to everyones satisfaction.  In that time not one 
substantial claim of limiting interoperability came up. If it did, we 
would have addressed it. You have to realize that we deal in facts, not 
innuendo or hearsay. We have to, this is a technical committee, afterall.

Now you come up with hand waving saying that there are some people that 
complained. I have not seen those complaints and I surely have not seen 
any technical arguments / examples.

I agreed that its worth investigating any problems, and offer to do so.

Then you start threatening.

This thread ends.
