Netscape blocked the Microsoft submission to the w3c because Netscape could not implement it. It was not rejected because the submission did not have merit.

So, it was rejected. What should Microsoft do? Intranet customers found it useful. Should Microsoft have sat on it or should it have met the needs of customers?

Microsoft elected to meet the needs of a customer group, and now you dump all over them. If you don't understand why delivering value to customers is good, then you probably don't understand why IE is beating Nav.
