The answer is a qualified Yes.
OK, so the two UWB camps decided not to make a deal and neither was able to get the votes for ratification. This, in fact, may have been the best possible outcome.
It was clear that the contesting technologies each had its advantages. Some unlikely kludge such as each side somehow promising to support the other's implementation would have been a recipe for disaster.
Now, the two sides will take their best shots at getting a dominant market share. The only real danger is that we have a repeat of the standards war and neither one can get the upper hand. There is always another technology on the horizon that will supercede today's latest and greatest. Neither camp has unlimited timeand they know it.
That's why it has to be a qualified Yes.
