Totally agree and it could be that one thing discussed is how any initiative could take some of the commercial risk out of a potentially new or updated software product. Things like "pledge" lists have a very real place and gives developers some idea of what is required.

At the end of the day the end result has to be that people are willing to pay for upgradst o existing packages or to say a yearly software service in order for the market to survive. If say a new software package filled a gap in the market and it also enabled this to filter through to people purchasing newer hardware or virtual hardware then this could only be good for everyone.
