Which is just slightly better than the Vincent Price For Plague.
There is a way. Make sure a lot of embarassing articles
are published about the project just as it is getting
started. Then the trendy types avoid it like the plague
and one can continue on an open list relatively unmolested
by cybersquatters hoping to make a rep or a fortune on
the newest thing.
Or keep it really boring.
One problem is the web habit or belief that one should
launch a working group with lots of huzzahs, hype, and
well-placed articles because it will have to be sold to
be accepted rather than waiting until they have something
to sell. Then the pressure is on and the work goes like
heck using Extreme measures instead of research, issues-based
discussion, and some strawmen to debate, taking time to
be sure that what is designed is what is wanted and what
is wanted is what is designed.

If you know how to solve these problems, I see the Nobel Price for
Peace in your future.
