Personally, I'd say if you don't like them just stop looking at their
stuff. Attacking them and trying to scream publically "we don't want
this as a standard!" just brings more attention to it and annoys
people. Just because it's on fd.o doesn't mean you _have_ to use it,
no matter what it is or what the people creating it say.
