Subject: Re: [xcbf] ANSI X9.84:2003 Available

References XCBF?  When that is not yet agreed?  You mean they are happy 
to reference an OASIS CS which is in dispute, and not an agreed CS or an 
OASIS Standard (which hopefully we will have very soon)?

Phil, I am not trying to be stroppy, but this unecessary haste to 
standardisation rather than technical consensus is **not** good.  Please 
do not hit the roof.  I am not trying to delay things.  But we DO need 
to get the technicalities right if this stuff is to have anything more 
than publicity value.

Note that both BioAPI and CBEFF have undergone VERY considerable changes 
from the first CD to the second CD (particularly CBEFF, where the whole 
meaning of "optional" in the standard has either been clarified or 
changed, depending on your view-point, and ASN.1 encodings have been 
added).  I do not think your X8.64 (or for that matter XCBF) text is 
compatible with the latest CBEFF CDs.

Standards are pogressing fairly well in these areas, but referencing old 
or iommature specifications helps no-one.

We need to get them all right.  (And consistent - and, I accept, in a 
timely manner.)
