The entire reason this list exists is because people apparently feel they need 
to have choices.

Very few things in computing are truly one-size-fits-all. Don't hammer a 
square block into a round peg. Don't use a LGM-118A Peacekeeper when a simple 
wrecking ball would do. Etc., etc., etc.

Or in short: Yes, people will find they need choices, whether or not you think 
they do. It would be better to still be able to nicely interoperate after 
those people have made a different choice.
