I can't help thinking of the IETF when reading this article about CORBA, and how its actual behaviour can deviate from its self-image. Some people refer to this disparagingly as the "IVTF" (V for vendor).

Having been involved -- very tangentially -- with the OMG and CORBA during the late '90s in Iona Technologies, I can assure you, the IETF has a _long_ way to go before it could be considered as vendor-driven as the OMG.

The IETF is a lot more open than the OMG was, I think.

I can't believe they didn't title the article "OMG WTF".
