   RE: [xml-dev] Facts to Support RAND? was: Re: [xml-dev] more pate nt fun

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yep.  I am in total agreement with that except they 
specify technologies and call those standards.  It's a 
quibble but one I have to repeat.  I'm a lot happier 
when private consortia specify technologies and then 
these technologies by adoption become de facto standards.

Yes, some technologies might not be brought forward in RF that would be 
brought forward in RAND.  Given the success of the Web so far, I can 
live with that.  There's something to be said for an organization that 
specifies standards that can be implemented and sold by anyone.  The 
RAND folks can create their own consortia as they've done in the past; 
they don't need the W3C to promulgate their IP revenue streams.
