I'm quite aware of that, but I still think Sun has more resources to get
their particular viewpoint through the committee -- it's just a matter
of resources at hand. I myself had to largely drop out due to other
pressures, for example.

Now, I'm much happier with Solaris being rubber-stamped than some other
possibilities. However, it's very easy to sweep concerns under the rug
by saying "legacy, out of scope."
