Hi Scott

Just to let you know that a draft standard is under development in ISO that attempts to address some of the functionality identified in the ELF under both "forum" and "chat."

A version of the document is currently being balloted, and is available at:

Thanks, Norm.

I'm a bit concerned about this, especially as the proposal has nothing specific about education in it, and conflicts with existing IETF specifications on email, chat (XMPP), and publication and syndication of posts (ATOM). What's the motivation for this standard? Is there an MOU in place with IETF to deal with the conflicts? Or do we have to choose between ISO and IETF?
