I agree that Foundation sounds solid if a bit stodgy, whereas Forum
sounds friendly and open. I don't particularly want to introduce
confusion (or competition) with the SIP Forum, which is a marketing
group and not a standards organization, and that's the main reason I
lean toward Foundation (despite the fact that in the abstract I prefer
Forum).
