This is neither a personal attack nor a deprecation of others work. It is 
simply a statement of conflicting demands upon the W3C: "Be fast!" and "Be 
far more open!" -- the two don't work well together, in my opinion, and 
IETF I believes shows that the "any and all comers" model produces work 
more slowly.

Any other judgements read into that are your own, not mine.
