Welcome to the Blogosphere, Katie!

I couldn't agree more with your analysis of this situation. The feet of clay these companies are demonstrating are doing us all damage.

We all need to do what you've done and speak out publicly about this. Dick Edelman has made proposals on his blog that aren't perfect, but are a start, and there was a week of posting on this topic on a number of PR blogs in February.

But people of your stature need to keep speaking out and in as high-profile a venue as you can find on this.
