This is simply silly.
What you are saying is that for religious reasons you are unwilling to use
FREE and widely used tools in order to help us develop our own.
Next thing you'll be telling me PDF is a bad thing.
If you want the IETF to be a place where more people can participate you
need to ditch some of this religion.

apart from that, we should all stay at our desks and use DECNet-PhaseV
or NetWare to get our work done, and stop trying to create new protocols
that are robust, interoperable, and open.
in other words there is a big nothing "apart from" that particular thing.
the fact that realmedia and windowsmedia aren't interoperable means that
we (this community) failed to recognize and address a common need, and
that the world (including this community) is suffering for it.
compounding this failure by adopting proprietary technology for the primary
work of this community -- which is interior and published communications --
would be a bad, bad (bad) thing.
