And they are not equal. That's my problem with it at the moment.
I don't really understand how this democratic-meritocratic principle
works. And what you explain below with Microsoft, for me it is not
meritocratic or democratic that's an ethical aspect.
Democracy means that everyone has the potential to contribute,
meritocracy means that contribution are judged by the community for
their value, continuity, quality, etcetera. There are some principles
though, and one of them is that contributions have to be constructive
(FOR) and not destructive (AGAINST). Asking to avoid writing support for
OOXML in order to bash Microsoft is meaningless.
Educating users about ethics related to Microsoft, OOXML and open
standards is not a task for export filters.
