I think you missed the point... I don't want people asking me if my mod is EMC.
I provide enough support to people not reading instructions already supplied with the mods to have to also deal with heaps of extra people asking if it can be used with EMC.
I guess the same issue with EM and phpBB3 exist... Both have been "under development" for over 4 years, which is very trying on the community. But I think it's worse for authors who have been waiting for 4 years for these standards.
