John,

Another read on the subject:

Enjoy.

I see some of your point Martin but I think the eu would look at that letter 
and see the author is stating 'MySQL has been used as a pricing lever'. That 
single factor should be enough for them to be very concerned by an 
acquisition as removing an effective pricing lever from the market by 
acquisition is anti-competitive and helps increase or maintain high prices.

I don't believe you could use any other open source database as a pricing 
lever in the same way because none are as mature or offer the levels of 
support that MySQL does and no other open source system can boast the 
performance benefits (especially with ndbcluster) or the availability of 
suitably trained and certified people to support their products.
