I don't see where an appearance of conflict of interest would come into
play. I'm pretty sure Michael doesn't have any products or services
that would work better with "zh-pinyin" than with "zh-Latn-pinyin", nor
does he represent any company or organization that does.
If you want to claim that Michael's position is ill-informed or not well
thought-out, or not adequately defended, that is a different matter.
Note that I'm not saying it is; I don't much care between "zh" and
"zh-Latn" since this field is informative.
