You may not know it but such standards exist. They are global, and created
by the UN commission for Europe (www.unece.org) - the hosting body of

UNECE creates them among other useful things, like the unified look of
road shields all over the world allowing you to use your driving license
in US, Australia and everywhere else. The drawback is the really tasty
