Yes, and we have methods in the spec to advertise the capabilities of a 
station, which is independent of 'brand' or 'model' or 'OS environment'.

We have 'messaging capable', 'preferred voice contact channel', 'voice 
alert', 'live operator present', and probably others, but those are just 
the ones that I remember being mentioned on this list recently...

  Arguments about OS preference and brand preferences abound.  A few years 
ago, some university researchers with time on their hands (and probably 
some grant money) sought to determine which brand had the most loyal 
customer base.  The results surprised them, because it turned up in a 
completely different industry.

   The 'winner'?  What brand commands the most fierce brand loyalty among 
it's fanboys?  (Hint:  DON'T call them 'fanboys'!)

Harley Davidson.  Think about it, What other brand do you ever see 
tattoo'd into human flesh???
