I think so.  This is not a matter of jingoism but rather a matter of
reusing what we already have instead of starting from scratch.

ANSI/INCITS provide a framework for arriving at a documented and
recognised consensus.  That's what we need.  And BTW, there is a
mechanism for taking an ANSI standard on to ISO so we can do that if
we think it's worthwhile.
