OpenIreland is also in the process of writting a letter and is also
encouraging others to submit letters. There is also someone on the technical
committee in NSAI giving us some guidance. But the more companies and
organizations who submit letters of objection with the rushed standard the
greater the chance of the NSAI voting to vote against it at the ISO level.
The address to send letters to are:
Secretary to the ICT Standards Consultative Committee,
I'll forward the OpenIreland letter to this list later today.
