It may well stretch beyond that, but I'm willing to bet that large
corporation-sponsored committees with itchy lawyer fingers and a
strong interest in keeping control of their publications are willing
to swat a small ill-funded project or two in order to protect that
interest. I think this effort is borrowing trouble, and we shouldn't
do it. I support Tom's call for references rather than excerpts.
I have to echo, as well, the concerns about testing things on a
production site. Not cool, that.
