"While sympathizing with where the FSF is trying to go, I'd argue that the market, as opposed to the license, is a preferred feedback loop."
Well I don't know if you noticed, but FSF has invited many different people and many different corporations to join in on the discussion and I haven't seen a person or company actually involved in the proccess bitch about how the FSF is operating or complaining about the GPLv3 (although people say that there are still ways to improve it.) Many of them are major propriatory software makers and holders of large amounts of patents.
The only bitching I see is from people that refused to join in on it in the first place. I mean it would be different if they joined in and became disillutioned about it and dropping out and THEN complaining. Then it would have a meaningfull impact.
I mean seriously folks, come on. It's not like they are making it _difficult_.
After all the GPLv3 isn't even released yet? So how can you gauge the market based on a vocal group hating a beta version of the product (ie the license draft.)
