Hi all,

I've always assumed that industry does not use DS or FS simply because
the IETF does not produce them in any great number.  The IETF doesn't
seem to produce them because WGs are, in general, charted to make
PSs; after which, they try to shut down.  There is very little incentive
in the IETF progress documents.  Industry, being industry, takes what
they get & runs with it.

I'm not sure how many of the proposals discussed would impact this 
situation in any meaningful way.
