Your contention was:
"When one works independently of a thing, implements entirely
different policies from it, and depends upon gaining support by
replacing the direct users of that thing, then one is seeking to
replace that thing."
That, to me, is precisely called "competition." That type of
competition is natural in our system of commerce.

What I don't understand is the need for a centralized service,
especially one that is non representative and unduly restrictive.
