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.
