I clearly have a quirky view of this.  It seems to me that Timothy and the 
others working hard at this do not have to "balance the needs of all sorts of 
people".  Why should they take any notice of those needs?  If they just chose 
a path and stick to it, and if that path lead to somewhere of their own 
choosing, rather than those of the conflicting claims of others, that seems 
to me fine. 

I am grateful for what they do.  I am grateful for being allowed to travel in 
their slipstream.  I reckon that I can take it or leave it.  If I choose to 
take it, I do so on my own responsibility and Timothy et al owe me nothing 
and are not required to "meet my needs".  It is not as though I am 
contributing anything.  

And anyway, whatever they do they will never please everybody.  I hate the 
revolving cube.  I have just seen a eulogy from someone who loves it.
