What's happened is a recognition that the original mission of the X
Consortium is largely complete, and that a full-fledged industry Consortium
isn't really needed or even necessarily appropriate for ongoing maintenance
of X.  Under those circumstances, it makes sense to bundle X in with the
other components of what has become the standard Unix desktop -- Motif and
CDE -- and turn the whole package over to OSF and X/Open (aka The Open Group)
for future maintenance.
