    John, as you well know, both UTC and WG2 have experts who do read the
    relevant documents. There is a wide variety of expertise in both
    committees. Some delegates have programming expertise. Some have
    linguistic expertise.

    Nothing is rubber-stamped. Sometimes proponants of a particular
    position have to argue for YEARS before a needed change or addition
    is approved.
