Not cool, Mr. Brauer. It is no secret that Sun made the complaint to
OASIS Membership that triggered this mess. And what was Sun's role and
position on the OASIS rule change in regard to non-profit corporations
that allowed your sneak attack?

I gave Sun a choice between dealing on the TC with the
interoperability issues or dealing with those issues in the press and
in Sun's prospective customers' offices. I warned that not dealing
with those issues on the TC would be regarded as a refusal to deal. I
have your answer.
