Bruce: "I like the idea of coordination between vendors but there appear to be pragmatic issues with it.  Who goes to who?  Vendor A who is first to market should be consulted by Vendor B who wants to make a similar product? How do you go to someone if they haven’t announced a product intention? Poll all the existing Vendors and give away your idea?
