Given that they just voted on the entire remainder of technical issues
with the standard and the NSAI just accepted that, then it would hardly
have made any difference how many other issues with the standard were
It appears to me that the process by which the NSAI decided everything
was sufficiently dealt with, was seriously flawed. Any standard that
cannot have all technicially issues easily dealt with "Individually"
within the given time frame should not be accepted under any fast track
process. It boggles the mind how any standards body cannot see that.
