I am not in any way kidding myself that this letter would make Google change 
the decision. However, it might get picked up in the media and might help put 
the open standards topic front and centre for a short while. Also, it *will* 
make Google at least a bit uncomfortable and maybe make them consider such 
decisions less viable in the future.
