This is a reasonable request. In a follow-up post or in any event in the formal proposal, I shall include examples of use of and/or demand for the representation of control pictures.

I would like to ask you/the list for the sources for C0 control pictures. They appear to be ANSI X3.32 and ISO 2047. (Also, FIPS Pub. 1-2, which consolidates ANSI X3.32 and some others.) Does anybody have these, and can you look the pictures up? In particular, X3.32 is withdrawn...
