This will not be submitted as a fast track item. As far as alignment issues,
this revision now incorporates all of the alignment fixes suggested by our
XCBF work - the XCBF BiometricObject and BioAPI BIR are now
properly aligned, and there is now in X9.84 as in XCBF an XML bridge
(based on the X9.84 and XCBF schemas) between the two. The X9.84
revision references XCBF normatively.

It will most likely be proposed to ISO TC68, since it is the work of
X9, the US TAG to that group. Note that unlike some countries, X9
has only one avenue for progressing its work, TC68.

The draft NP document though calls for close cooperation with SC27,
as this work involves template protection mechanisms needed for secure
storage and transmission of biometric information. The current NP on
biometric in ballot in SC27 refers to X9.84 as a primary input document.

The proposed NP also calls for close cooperation with SC37. But you
will recall that at its first meeting, SC37 elected to change their 
charter to
eliminate template protection. Still, there's more to X9.84 than template
protection, though it's primary focus is information management and

These of course are merely my opinions and not those of the US.
