The war of words over Massachusetts' proposal to standardize on the OASIS Open Document Format continues to rage, stimulating people on all sides to some quite remarkable feats of rhetoric, analysis, speculation, paranoia, and a bit of good ol' FUD. I have made some small contributions to the debate,not addressing the substance of the dispute so much as picking up on the implications for what XML standardization means.
