	The point is - that companies can't just "drop" an app from the
platform; if they ship it, there is an expectation that they will be
moving it forward, and supporting it in the medium to long term, and
that sort of constraint will only increase with time.

	Well; propose something then. I don't see how the GEP is overkill, but
I'm interested in your concrete, alternative proposal - and why it is
superior. Vague criticism doens't help us at all.
