No, Jonathan, it's not that simple.  I've read through these 
specifications.  At some point I decided that they were horrible enough 
that putting in the effort for a complete understanding of them was an 
astounding waste of time.

I've evaluated these specifications, and found them wanting in dire 
ways.  That's very different from not having bothered.

Don't take rejection for ignorance, even if it suits your own view.
