Yes of course.... and with more of then i have the same ethical question ... 

But see the example of linux-sound, is usefull for all the users, and sure 
dont have in their members the relevance of the members of the consortium.
Then i agree with their name.

That's not a good example ... but ... if i register .. windowsaudio.org and is 
a consortium of Steinberg and C-Labs for example ... sure Bill Gates don't 
will be happy with that .... well .... in my opinion .. linux is from all the 
people who mades something for linux, projects documentation ... etc, then i 
can understand som people dont be happy.

For me is the same, i don't worry about, but a non-profit organization who 
takes profit of their name .... creates flames :-)

Anyway this world if for the smart people ... or that i heard sometines.
