Yes, thank you. That makes sense.

I always say "Standards are weapons in the hands of the losers," which is more-or-less true on mobile. Standards as insurance nicely complement my approach: the current losers want to draw on the insurance and thus enter a standards-supporting phase.

I will steal your idea for my own use.
