Hum. I'm reminded of the often used thought process: "hmmm, there are  
way to many standards in this area, what we can do to improve things  
is add another, that would be great!".

The way to help, IMHO, would be to make the existing systems  
compatible, using bridges/reflectors/wrappers, rather than creating  
more specs.
