I figured that was the case, from many comments Craig and others with past 
involvement in the ATSC have made. However, this (presumed) personality problem 
within the ATSC has nothing to do with the standard itself. There's no reason 
to think that ATSC receivers can't be updated every bit as much, or as easily, 
as DVB receivers can. Or that these updates can't potentially be done 
automatically, in products from CE companies that decide to build in the 
capability. It's all *well* within the state of the art, and ATSC documents 
already show the way. Matter of fact, A/53 (now cum E-VSB), A/90, A/97, A/101, 
A/110, to name a few, show clearly that at least SOME within the ATSC are fully 
aware of how digital comm standards are kept alive. They must be sneaking these 
gems in late at night, without being noticed.

Craig and others seem to think that the ATSC standard is somehow inherently 
different, in some fundamental way, from all the other digital comm standards 
out there. I've been trying to figure out why for years. All I can conclude is, 
lack of exposure to the others.
