it's not that simple when it comes to collaboration where it really
matters if incompatibilty is hosed.

trademark law - actually Certification Mark Law - is the "safety
barrier" behind which interoperability actually works.

the problem is: it is *essential* that the Trademark holder be FRAND -
Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminary, if they wish to actually
continue to hold that Trademark.

The RISC-V Foundation have been BLATANTLY unfair, unreasonable and
discriminatory, for a protacted, consistent and persistent
time-period, spanning SEVERAL YEARS.
