Well sure. I was failing to grasp how he got from "I don't like it" to  
"we don't like it" where "we" is everyone outside the core language  
team. If any individual doesn't like it then they shouldn't use it.  
There is, however, often a problem with extrapolating from "I" to "we"  
in matters of preference.
