So you can be corrupt by using a product in your systems, having the
vendor point out why it would be useful as a standard, and then joining
the standards effort because it would benefit you?

So someone who relies on Java is corrupt to participate in the XML WG if
Sun is there? And someone whose business relies Lotus Notes is corrupt to
participate at OASIS if IBM is there? I don't think so.
