Whether you believe that PGP Inc would do such a thing or not, I doubt
if you would disagree that there is a clear conflict in interest in PGP
Inc writing the draft around PGP Inc product.  The same conflict of
interest exists around RSADSI, for example.

Point of accuracy -- the current S/MIME spec is being written by:

Section 1: Cryptographic Message Syntax
Russ Housley

Section 2: Enhanced Security Services for S/MIME
Paul Hoffman
Internet Mail Consortium

Section 3: S/MIME Version 3 Message Specification
Blake Ramsdell

Please note that none of the authors are RSADSI employees.  You may also
note that this new spec has no MUST requirement for any RSADSI
