I don't buy that argument. What if Sony decides to stop making AIT's? 
Then what? Sony's AIT is just as proprietary as Ecrix's VXA. After all, 
isn't the MacOS proprietary -- now? And DLT was proprietary at the 
beginning too. I look at it like this...somebody has to be the first and 
they're going to work with their proprietary formula until some other 
company decides to pay the licensing or OEM (or whatever they're called 
in hardware) fees.
