The two goals are not mutually exclusive. There seems to be a misconception amongst many that GEDCOMs are evil and need to be exorcised. However, there is no reason why they cannot be used to facilitate rather than hinder the growth of the tree. Many people, often without thinking, blame them for inaccuracies. Properly done, GEDCOMpare should be a more convenient way of contributing and every bit as accurate as posting manually. I'm beginning to get the impression that there is resistance to making it better and that there is a lack of interest in seeing the shared tree succeed.
