So some people can't read and/or are deliberately misrepresenting fd.o. Find
those people and beat them severely.
Which is a bit of an empty directive without actual names of people to go
after and brutalize. So, I must ask the crowd: who out there is actually
saying freedesktop.org is a formal standardization body capable of enforcing
the adoption of technologies or components?
If you can't answer that question with the name of a particular individual,
then you may now stop squawking about "misrepresentation", because you've
disproved your own assertion.
