So, let me say this about that, because many people bristle when they
hear the word "standard".

The value that Andreas' is trying to create is not about imposing a rule
on the internet, it's about taking responsibility within a bunch of people
who are already working on a problem, then publishing and evangelizing the
solution. A good spec is less like a law and more like a dll, i.e.
something useful that you would be wise to take advantage of.
