I would love it if someone who objects to the feature could describe the path by which Microsoft could redeem itself. If they break backward compatibility, people will claim they’re evil. If they don’t implement the standards, people will claim they’re evil. Their existing features don’t comply with standards. The only way to maintain backward compatibility while altering existing features is through versioning. The standards bodies aren’t interested in versioning. Sounds kind of like a no win situation to me. So what should we do, point a revolver at their head and demand they pick sides?
