Why does Sam Ruby have his nose in the RSS 2.0 Specification?

Hey Sam

You have Atom thats your Baby, the question I have is why are you involved in the RSS 2.0 specification discussion?
You have been very outspoken on RSS for all this time. Keep your hands off the RSS specification, or have you been given your marching orders by your employer IBM? I am not at all pleased that people with commercial interest are messing with the RSS standard that I and others have invested significant dollars into deploying sites that depend on the specification being rock solid, with your hands meddling in something that should not be happening in the first place makes me realize there is a lot more going on here than meets the eye!
