XML spec editor: OOXML ISO process is "unadulterated BS"

"The function of the Ballot Resolution Meeting (BRM) is to enable ISO participants to evaluate and vote on ECMA's responses, many of which are technical recommendations aimed at resolving or addressing perceived deficiencies in the standard. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of problems in the specification identified by ISO members has made the review process a significant challenge. There were over 1,000 ECMA responses, spanning approximately 2,300 pages." Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
