I guess my question would only be, "Play the standards game as opposed top doing what?" The IEEE, the IETF, 3GPP, the defunct ATMF, the ITU, the ATSC, the DVB, heck, even NASA, all of these organizations are umbrella organizations, under which companies with very vested interests cooperate. These companies cooperate only because they know they must, in order to further their own agenda. So, as opposed to what? As opposed to disinterested third parties being the ones to develop standards, when they most likely see no imperative to "make it right," and may even have questionable expertise in the field? Or, as opposed to bureaucrats in government? I've long believed that the public at large is unaware of how these things really work. For example, the public at large think that organizations like NASA invent everything on their own, with their own in-house experts being the main creative force. Ditto for the IEEE and the rest of them. But it simply ain't so. In some cases, the umbrella organization consists mostly of contract administrators. In other cases, such as the IETF, not even that!
