Clearly there are some structural issues with OASIS and with the
details of this particular case, and vendors on this TC and OASIS
itself need to make sure to keep this in mind.

But your solution here is childish and counter-productive.

On the last TC coordination call minutes, Lars listed my affiliation
as the Foundation. I really don't want my name associated with this
organization anymore. I've lost any respect I once had for its work.
