Right, the initial standard was produced as a one off effort and the
ANSI project got closed down once the standard was released. What we
are trying to do now is to get an on-going process started with the
aim of producing a new version evey 18 months to two years. By
time-boxing the process we won't be held up by things for which no
consensus can be reached, but anything worth having in the standard
will make it in the end.
