If we all agree that that's a valid characterization of ADSP, I suggest we move to get it downgraded from Proposed Standard to Experimental.  There's certainly a lot of rhetoric suggesting it's an experiment that's in the process of failing, though the experiment is also arguably not complete.

At any rate, I'm happy to participate in an effort to specify something that actually stands a chance of working, and test it in widely available software.
