Nothing personal, but I have to say that this conversation is a large 
waste of time.  Changing from software to standards serves no useful 
purpose as software has to be built on top of standards any way. 
Instead of sending all this mail back and forth about an otherwise 
pointless topic, perhaps some energy could be better spent writing 
software, or working on compliance?
