   RE: [xml-dev] ISO turns evil?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

David is right.  The use of country codes is far 
too widespread to enforce this at this time. Stopping 
public safety systems to retool these codes is 
unthinkable and the backlash would be overwhelming. 
We depend on ISO for stability and guaranteed process; 
introducing a license fee at this time would be more 
than a minor irritation.


From: David Megginson [mailto:dmeggin@attglobal.net]

Again, this is all premature.  Obviously, someone has made some kind
of a serious mistake at ISO (given the warning on the Web site), but
hopefully it's one that they will fix quickly.  If not, then they will
rapidly become completely irrelevant in the standards world, since
almost no one is interested in taking a risk with standards that might
turn out not to be royalty-free.
