Are we seeing a kinder, gentler, more diplomatic Matt? ;-)

IMHO… if a vendor paper mentions the RM or RA, we should comment – diplomatically – on it.  If it’s just some marketing stuff, ignore it.
Why comment?  Well, people will google…and if they see us endorsing appropriate use of our standard(s), then the vendors win and we’ve proven in a roundabout way that supporting standards is a good thing.  If the paper skews, misinterprets or disparages our work, we should feel comfortable discussing or blogging about the issue as long as we keep it collegial.

I suggest we tone down our personal opinions regarding vendors and vendor-oriented solutions as this forum is open to OASIS members, which clearly includes vendors.  This is, afterall, an industry consortia.  When it comes time to ask these very same vendors to ratify our public draft specifications, we will want them on our side.
