IMHO, set top boxes designed with preconceived program structures will fail
to attract the interests of production houses and the audience.  I would
prefer to give creative artists a clean canvas to work with than forcing
them to 'color-by-number'.  Also, TV producers, the ultimate control freaks,
will not accept the harness given them by the DTD designers.
