Campaigining for standards adoption shouldn't really be a bone of contention. It benefits everyone.
I was just trying to expand your thinking but from your statement you are taking concrete steps to get what you want outside of Amazon which I think is a good thing.

Could the fact that Amazon was selling DRM free music part of the push that was necessary for Apple to go DRM free as well? It may take competition from an outside source to get Amazon to change it's stance (or maybe just time).
