Polluting the list with standards discussions

Hello Everyone, My apologies for starting thread(s) on standards discussions if they are annoying people. They may not be appropriate for this list. I proposed some guidelines for this list, that I'll repeat here: GUIDELINES FOR DISCUSSIONS ON THIS LIST: 1) Accept that people will want to author and/or view with other formats and that the right solution may vary depending upon the application 2) Be open-minded about formats other than those you know and love. 3) Produce vblogs that highlight the advantages of your preferred format(s). 4) Work together to find ways for multiple formats to co-exist Perhaps the word "standards" should replace "formats", but you get the idea. Perhaps the following should be added: 5) Detailed technical and/or philosophical discussions of standards should not occur on this list. Discussion of vblogs that use various standards is OK. If you have a standard to promote, show us a vblog that uses it. (See #3 above.) So my questions for the list are: A) Should we adopt some guidelines similar to what I proposed? B) At what point should I, Lucas, and other interested people move these kind of technical discussions to another location?
