I very much agree with all these points - no issue. I also agree with your
observation about companies misbehaving. That is that does not make the
standard wrong. My point in the earlier notes to John S. was that while the
standards might not be wrong, they may be irrelevant. That has been and
remains my concern in a context even broader than the current discussion. I
have and can offer no solution.
