Windows The Verge has a learned a few interesting things about Google deprecating EAS and how this will affect Windows Phone users. As it turns out, Google informed Microsoft it was planning to remove EAS in the summer of last year, but without giving a firm date. Microsoft has been trying to get a six-month extension from Google, but so far with no luck. In the meantime, Microsoft is also working on adding CardDAV and CalDAV support to Windows Phone - so yay open standards.

I have no clue what "fairness" has to do with this. Nowhere does Microsoft claim EAS to be an "open standard." Furthermore, I pointed out the definition for "open standards" for Microsoft as an organization. You seem to be under the impression that "documented" and "open" are the same, which is not necessarily the case.
