No, not really. I actually think what we all need is ;
 confidence in the data, esp. when viewed from a continuing 
infrastructure perspective.
 security for the data against unneccessary or unwanted use/alteration.
 privacy for the owner/registrant of the data.

Better is not best. It'd be much better if we were the best. Then we've 
got something to sell to everyone.
Take the new email domain idea that's recently been raised..
Where spam is stopped at the front door through an authorised network of 
"email doms".

Thats the sort of thing I'm talking about..innovative improvements and 
developing a system that IS best practice and has something to offer 
that all the others don't.
Confidence, Security, and Privacy.

Regards.

Mike.
