Well, the point is that they don't, so car and train are quite different. D-
Bus and AllJoyn may be quite different after the fork due to different

I don't know, and this is after a couple of years interacting with AllJoyn 
people. They never approached us (D-Bus community) and talked about those 
things, so we never got a good analysis and discussion on how to keep

I'm not going to speculate further.
