I don't in any arena (here, xml-plenary, and other  water-cooler
discussions) feel that my suggestion was one of "two non-commercial voices
being lost to 'more important voices'". 

The suggestion was indeed heard, digested, and discussed by individuals
who's work product impacts the idea. I have confidence that this area will
be explored. 

I don't call that "lost", nor do I consider anyone else's "voice" more
