If this is the case, that's fine with me. However, I've spoken to too
many people being surprised by the DANTA announcement, so it didn't
appear *that* coordinated.

It's not necessarily more commercial than the DANTE offering. At least,
it will give interested parties a chance to participate on equal terms.

That's what I thought would happen, and such a Call for Tender has indeed
been prepared by TERENA, as far as I know, which has given me the feeling
that the TERENA activity in that area was pre-empted by DANTE's announcement
of a service. Maybe somebody from TERENA and/or DANTE cares to comment about
that? At least one of your customers is a bit confused about these semi- or
fully-parallel CERT/CC activities, so please clarify the situation!
