Garbage Vic. The success of the Internet itself is due mainly to 
individuals and small groups getting off their butts and innovating 
first, then showing the world. Design-by-committee is precisely why 
ISO/OSI failed, and TCP/IP triumphed. I can't recall the exact 
phrase, but it goes something like 'working code, and rough 
consensus'. You may belive it to be unfair, even unacceptable, but 
having one individual volunteer to provide an essential service that 
keep the Internet roughly on track for the majority certainly isn't 
unprecedented - in fact, you owe your livelihood to it.
