I believe that article is available in a more accessible form at http://www.tdan.com/i016hy01.htm

"What Makes a Standard a Standard?

Simple. Not implementation, but conformance. And, conformance is "known"
only after
conformance testing. Then and only then can users know with any degree of
certainty that a vendor's
product conforms to a standard."
