I think I should have qualified it as "recognized international standard" or something like that. The bit about the 4 canonical standards organizations is my recollection of information in one of the previous incarnations of this thread on xml-dev. Somebody (Len Bullard?) can probably remind us of the legalities, or let me know if I'm full of it.
