Julian, >> RS> there is some fundamental flaw that makes a "fast" implementation impossible >> What flaw ? JR> I think the point was that you won't know about a flaw like that until JR> you have tried to implement it, thus it would be unwise to standardize JR> it earlier. (1) Theorem of existance of _fundamental_ flaw is not proved. (2) You postulate, that _fundamental_ flaw must be, even not naming (entitling) them. JR> it would be unwise to standardize it earlier. Agruments are necessary, as usual ! Without them, it's only words. But argument against are the following: large manufactorers (e.g. Oracle, etc) refuse implement before standardization. >> RS> Perhaps one of the key concepts is covered by a patent held by a jerk. JR> Then the specification would be of less use, because fewer people would JR> be interested in or capable of implementing it. (1) Ideas (instead of algorithms) are not capable to be patented ! (2) International patent does not exist (if you want to patent, you must make this in each country separetely). From where you have this fear ("perhaps") ?
