"It would be more like if Mozilla refused to send my threatening letter to the President because it supported the Good President Keeping Seal of Approval."

Give me one good example of the GNKSA preventing someone from doing something they should be able to do.

"so suddenly "standards compliance" means supporting every RFC or guideline that comes out whether Mozilla promised to support it or not."

No, if Mozilla didn't promise to support something, that doesn't mean that it isn't a good idea.

"And don't forget to ignore the fact that if developers are working on GNKSA compliance, they're not fixing other, possibly more important bugs."

You forget that this is just a matter of numbering. Do we wait for GNKSA compliance before we call it "Mozilla 1.0" or not? There will still be nightlies, and possibly an intermediate 0.9.x milestone if it takes a while.
