   As far as the public is concerned, you're no longer just the OSI,
   you're a group that wants to control the term Open Source (yeah, fine
   with me, but I agree with Ian, don't lie if it's just your personal
   mission) to whatever your whims dictate, regardless of the "definition"
   (not fine with me).
