Couldnt agree more. It's all just creating extra layers on the onion,
in the illusory expectation that those will be more 'standard' than
the ones below. Commercial forces will make sure that such interfaces
will diverge anyway. And more often than not they just exist to ensure
some intermediate parasites can profit from them.

It sometimes makes me think of they way tomatos are being distributed
and sold here in Italy. They will travel up and down the entire country
(either physically or just virtually) a number of times before ending
up in the shops. Both the producers and the consumers are ripped off
by middlemen taking their profit on redundant steps.
