However, if we wish to alter their behavior, one recourse 
is to provide the definitive test that enables one to 
discover that their implementation is aberrant.  In 
that way, systems that must inteoperate play tit for tat 
and on detecting bad behavior, route around it to look 
for an alternative service.  MIT and other Kerberos 
community officials document the non-interoperability 
of the implementation and give it a low rating. 

I agree completely about base services.  It is a problem 
everywhere I look in XML languages particularly those 
that are being re-represented in so called supersets. 
We've discussed this before as the contract for behavioral 
fidelity and how that contract has to be testably 
expressed in the standards language.

Simplistic, I realize, but I think you get the point. 
Children that play well together are rewarded and 
those that don't go to time out.

In the XML community, particularly for the SAX protocol, the xml-dev list
sets standards of behavior. Perhaps we define simply 'not playing nice with
the other children' as what was done wrong.

This is xml-dev, the mailing list for XML developers.
