As long as they are working with published standards, I don't see
anything wrong with that.  Go beyond the specs, and you don't get a
promise of compatibility.

It is not like TeX would be any different.  It is just enfuriating for
people putting out lookalikes which are not adopted into use presumably
because of the cost of incompatibilities, when the upstream software is
much more incompatible on each version change.

That's life.
