Again, I am mostly just a lurker on this list, so my apologies for coming
out with a suggestion like this after just lurking and not working, but IMHO
it's a good thing to have criticism of ODF on the wiki ODF page. It makes
it look more like a "real" Wikipedia page (for lack of a better word). In
other words, it would seem as if the public is going to expect some
criticism of us. IMHO, criticism of us only makes us stronger, because how
can you really criticize ODF? What is there to not love about open
standards? And isn't open source all about being a meritocracy? They will
only improve us by criticizing us, because we will then respond and squash
whatever bugs they bring up. Look at the whole issue of accessibility that
was raised in regard to Massachusetts. MS came in with its bogus
accessibility complaints, and our community jumped all over that issue. It
made us stronger.
