It might well be that the board is open for good ideas and new insights ;)
IIRC, the policy to not compare with AOO in public, was based on the
wish to not divide the two more than was the case, in the hope that a

Looking at the current situation, I think it can be well defended that
we should change policy. And start comparing clearly (and non offensive)
to help inform the users out there.
