Brendan sees Mozilla developing into an open cross-platform alternative to forthcoming Microsoft technologies such as XAML and is looking to collaborate with other open-source projects to make this happen." The GNOME project is mentioned explicitly. Brendan's message is part of a longer thread about the goals of mozilla.org.

I agree with you on all points. If Gerald has been this stubborn simply about a name, imagine what it would be like to work with him. If and when the time comes to make a new XUL 2.0, and he or others offer some polite, constructive suggestions on how to make it better, that's great. Otherwise I'd wish he stop bothering us. Besides, if there is reason for any of these other XML UI projects to work with us, I'd rather deal with them directly than through Gerald and his Alliance.
