That's true, but those folks (or, more accurately, their bosses) have
their shorts in a knot over the recent attacks.  I don't have a lot of
sympathy for the corporations which have a long history of half-baked
implementations, but our best bet is to help them figure it out.

But there is no other.  I can't really blame them for eventually going
live, I just wish they tried harder to work and play well with others.

Happens all the time.  Ford Pinto gas tanks, space shuttle O-rings,
the list goes on.  Let's have some perspective: nobody died this time.
And I doubt the principal authors ignored their own advice; some PHB
did it.
