Mike,    (01)

[MB]I agree. Speaking as one of those people from that part of the world 
that is not called America, we don't need Congress to make it all 
happen. Some of us even helped the US to win WWII if I recall :-)    (02)

[RC]Thank you so much for your assistance in that trying time.     (03)

[MB]Where the action and the benefit is, as I see it, is in having something    (04)

that existing standards bodies (both industry standards bodies and ISO) 
can use. Many of the standards groups have been using XML, and then UML, 
and are starting to recognise that meaning is the problem not 
technology. So there are plenty of examples, both as industry consortia 
and ISO committees (and ISO has a mechanism for industry bodies as well 
as countries to be involved in standards setting).    (05)

[RC] I don't expect standards to precede useful deployment of the technology
because I haven't seen standards precede any other technology demonstration.
If the value is there, standards will follow.  If standards precede
technology demonstration, history says they will be de minimus.      (06)
