Noted.  Sven raised much the same issue.

At this point, I'm aware of three flaws in this proposal:

[1] It doesn't even suggest a migration towards more free software.

[2] It doesn't mention LSB, which it probably should.

[3] I didn't sign the proposal.

I'm going to wait a day or so to see if anyone else indicates any
other flaws.  If no one else has written up a better proposal by
then, I'll update the one I submitted.
