I don't see what such information would demonstrate, unless you are intending to imply
that ISO is only acting independently and competently when it disagrees with the UTC. But
that would just be stupid.
You are expecting the percentage of ISO decisions that want against UTC recommendations to
be small, I presume. But all this would indicate is that two very similarly composed
groups of engineers and linguists dealing with the same issues agree on the same solutions
most of the time, which is exactly what I would expect. If two such similarly composed
group regularly came to opposite opinions, I would be very surprised.
