THey should be very satisfied.

1) Knowing that all existing users can and will be able
to see anything they send that is in conformance with
the spec.  It is very satisfying to know tht what you
send will be seen by everyone else.

2) If they are the 28% who own a kenwood, they
will be satisfied that they will still be able to see
anything that anyone sends (in accordance with
the spec).

3) They will be pleased to know that the spec has
plenty of free fields for future expansion as evidenced
by the !DAO! proposal which adds 1 foot resolution
without breaking anything that currently exists.

Yes, that is my job.  I work hard at it.
And look at the crap I have to put up with...

This sounds to me like you have a financial advantage
by obsoleteing the kenwoods.  TO me that smacks
of self-interest.  You bash the kenwoods and then
try to get everyone to buy your tracker.... becuase
it will use an object format that none of none of
the kenwoods can see.

Sorry to have to say that, but it is the way you
are coming across.
