I'm sorry, I can't let this one just slip past. As Bristol University's
Advisory Committee representative to W3C, I can assure you that agendas
other than software vending are represented. Bristol University may be
many things, and there are many groups here who do produce saleable
software, but we're not software vendors. We joined W3C to participate
in the development of specifications that affect teaching, learning and
research applications in our *.ac.uk environment. And we're not alone
in this...
