"The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from."
-- Andrew Tanenbaum

Absolutely! And everyone has confirmed what I felt: the term "Internet Standard" is way too vague, putting in a website link to explain what we mean is useful, but providing the specific STD is really the way to go.

(Now I just have to figure out which STD it is or make the SME figure it out. And then see which one of us will prevail in terms of including info that I say is essential but that the SME says to omit -- a situation that somewhat routinely pops up with a particular group of folks and so I try to limit my pushback to issues that are really important enough to warrant it :-)
