Why is it wrong? That's what I don't get. Aren't all documents we create 
intended for the use of particular companies and programs?

More later perhaps but:

I thought I was very clear: I have no objection (subject to the permission of 
the person who rents the room, which I'm sure you'd get) for the same people 
to meet to discuss the same things at the same time they would have met 
otherwise, and I have no views on what they can talk about or what documents 
they can edit. I might even be there myself. My proposals have bent over 
backwards to avoid inconveniencing anyone by this formal change of status.

But I think it's wrong for work to continue _under_the_CAB_Forum_banner_ on a 
document _which_retains_a_CAB_Forum_label_ but which has no prospect of 
becoming an official work product of the Forum, and which is instead being 
edited for the use of particular companies and programs which are not the 
Forum's responsibility.
