Yes it's wrong. Merely having Gnome's name in the TC45 list does not assist in OOXML becoming an ISO standard. No NB will change a vote from No to Yes because Gnome is on the list of TC45 participants. How about IBM? IBM is also in the list of participants. Will you also raise an issue with IBM and say that they are assisting OOXML becoming an ISO standard? Even though the only reason they joined was to vote against it? NBs know full well that because your name is on the list it doesn't mean that you are in favour of it (as with IBM). The conflicts raised do not include "not enough names on TC45". PJ has a valid point about third-party implementations, but then the issue is not about Jody being on the TC45 but about Gnumeric implementing OOXML.
