We will see what will happen in future... there were two visions of a possible future, a open and free platform but needing participation and not passive sitting (and moaning about costs or lack of progress) or a closed but commercial platform with again being dependent on individuals (copyright owners) and of course paying for everything. Obviously most are for the second, but then I would recommend people not to moan about what might happen because I will remind everyone what he wrote.
