Of course, one of the problems with existence is that everything eventually comes down to faith... Whether it is faith in God, Self, Science, or whatever. Faith is how people operate.
I agree with Perens on this matter... The fact that he created the OSI guidelines implies that he would know best what their intent was. While nothing should be judged soley on intent, the motivations and ideas behind the creation of something -- the mindset or spirit of the author, if you will -- does provide healthy insight. It is for this reason that I, when creating various charters (for school activities), have always included an addendum that expresses the rhyme behind the reason.
I hope that by showing people what was already attempted, they can use that as a foundation for what they have done. Of course, since Perens is still available, it would make sense for him to join in the conversation.
Of course, it seems that Bruce's opinion matters just about as much as mine ;)
