Third-parties are MORE than happy to follow protocols (IE: technology) but they balk and retooling for proprietary die-casting.

Then please explain why there is more third party equipment with support for the proprietary Sony/Minolta shoe and the Sony/Minolta protocol than there is for the standard Olympus hot shoe and the Olympus protocol.

Seems to me that the proprietary shoe did not hold them back. The have simply judged the size of the potential market, and for Sony it wasn't large enough before now.
