And note, by the way, that this is how they trashed Gracenotes' RFA -
he answered saying he went for a non-absolute link by link approach,
and they then trashed the RFA for not following the absolute approach
they claim to be repudiating. We've seen nothing whatsoever to
reassure us they won't do the same to Gracenotes or some other editor
next time - trashing an RFA for not agreeing with a *failed* policy
