It will be good if you can expand the description of
"Proprietarisation of standards and code that build the Internet"
little bit. if it is not too late.  The current description only
addresses "use of proprietary and closed standards and code in
building the Internet system.".  Along with the focus to make
Internet protocols as free standards we have to point on data encoding

internet should not be polluted by privately owned data formats like
mp3, mp4, flash, ppt, doc, DRM embeded media etc . This needed
toprevent 1 st point  "Increasing corporatisation of the Internet"


Any responsible politician should be encouraging a home grown Free
Software industry because it creates the basis for future jobs.
Learning Windows is like learning to eat every meal at McDonalds.
