  No. It's Daniel Veillard reacting to person A saying that person B
think something evil. I'm just stating my personal disliking of such
rethoric, and asking for clarification in case I missed something. 
In the case of a company it's even more difficult to guess their
  Considering common sense, it's your appreciation obviously, another
common sense until recently was that large organizations kept their
code jealously secret because it was their best interest. Seems it's
not always the case today, and I would rather give them credit for
changing than suggesting they have an evil plan.
  Anyway my experience with those large companies is that you may
know what an individual working for this company thinks but it's
difficult to generalize.
  My personal viewpoint is that rationale discussion can only be based
on facts. Starting a discussion based on the opinion on what someone else
is thinking is mostly politics, and I would rather keep this low volume.
