xslt trendy
Which is just slightly better than the Vincent Price For Plague.

There is a way.  Make sure a lot of embarassing articles 
are published about the project just as it is getting 
started.  Then the trendy types avoid it like the plague 
and one can continue on an open list relatively unmolested 
by cybersquatters hoping to make a rep or a fortune on 
the newest thing.

Or keep it really boring.

One problem is the web habit or belief that one should 
launch a working group with lots of huzzahs, hype, and 
well-placed articles because it will have to be sold to 
be accepted rather than waiting until they have something 
to sell.  Then the pressure is on and the work goes like 
heck using Extreme measures instead of research, issues-based 
discussion, and some strawmen to debate, taking time to 
be sure that what is designed is what is wanted and what 
is wanted is what is designed.

If you know how to solve these problems, I see the Nobel Price for
Peace in your future.
