Not just corporations. An open source or other type of organisation might
just as well have requirements that mandate a different kind of policy.

I guess I touched a nerve, so you must consider yourself one of those then.

Just for the record: I meant that there's always a group who actively push
one solution over all others without regard to what the current situation
demands. If you cannot step back and look at the whole without trying to
push your own things, there's nary a word other than rabid and zealous for
that type of behaviour.
