Dont assume that "a company" has shared clue. "A company" may have
people with the clue, but business units may travel without said
clue being used.

Especially MYSQL, being IIRC run as a semi-independent unit anyway,
that hasn't been fully integreated. Again, its what I've heard, but it
wouldn't surprise me.

Have you asked people at Sun what visa they filed for in particular?
Being denied short-stay business visas if you're just a random MySQL
guy doesn't surprise me.

(That said, I'm hoping my to-be visa application isn't denied because
i'm a "random multi-gige web and nntp performance infrastructure guy". :)
