There is an advantage for members of the Alliance to step out ahead of 
the pack, especially if they build components used in both portables and 
base stations, and then a lesser advantage that they still interoperate 
with less advanced systems.

A group like the Alliance would be more interested in having the 
technology implemented the same way for everyone, so as not to fragment 
the business and reduce everyone's profits.

If either of those motivations provides a way in, then so much the 
better.  If the Alliance does a technical conference, a presentation on 
how wired performance was improved might be interesting to their members.
