In Digg, I gave him the benefit of the doubt and said that he's totally out of
touch/date. Pieter and Andy have the latest from the ISO. It's looking bad.
ISO doesn't want to shoot itself in the foot. It saw what happened. So did ESR
(in the OSI).
I still refuse to use the word lobbying because it's a very gentle term that
describes something brutal and dishonest.
