  What about when people are not *for* the same thing?

  I don't believe it is effective to break people into smaller groups
simply because they are not for the same thing. I've had this same
discussion over the past 5 years with those opposing international
"Investment policy".  Sometimes what you have in common is only what you
are against.  Sometimes the status-quo (IE: doing nothing)  is what you
want rather than doing the wrong thing, which I believe is the case for
Investment Policy, protection of technological measures, etc!

  I would love to have a "Right to Compatibility" group form, but are all 
the software types going to the meetings in agreement on this issue as 
bing the most critical?
