[REBOL] Re: Wikipedia

I don't have a definition at hand, and I'm not keen on proposing one.
It shouldn't be difficult to confirm that REBOL is proprietary. For example,
the R3 page http://www.rebol.com/rebol3/architecture.html states, "It should
be noted that [Core runtime component] is not open source; it is a
proprietary core." And R3 is intended to be a more open, collaborative model
than previous releases.
One question is,"Does any person or business entity own
and control the REBOL language and interpreter?" I think the answer is yes--
sure, the company REBOL Technologies officially owns it, with Carl
Sassenrath being its primary designer, architect, corporate officer and
I think its better to be transparent about this and let users decide for
themselves. In my opinion, it serves public interest to characterize REBOL
as proprietary-- unless you can provide evidence to the contrary.
