One option however would be to seek 'partnerships' between vendors and
the IETF that span more than one meeting. Unless that impacted the
perceived 'neutrality' of the IETF and its standardisation processes.
I suspect that this would indeed be a question.
To invoke a particularly apt cliche punchline: we are merely haggling about
ah yes, but perhaps the point of that joke is that there really is a
difference between a novelty and a commodity.
