So no, we're not treating China unfairly in this discussion. We're not
holding China to a higher standard, we're questioning - as we must for due
diligence - whether the standard to which they want to hold the IETF is too
high or too disjoint from the normal set of standards and practices for IETF
Since the IETF discusses how to make the Internet work better, the only
reason why IETF members could feel worried is that they would intend to
discuss how to build a better working Internet that would be prohibited in
China? Either this means considering splitting the Internet from 1/3 of its
users. Or that the IETF can develop standards that do not take local users'
legitimate and/or legal needs into consideration. Or did I miss something?
What about the legality of a similar case in the USA?
