As for the ISO-9000 standards and the folks who want to write standards
here, think about this...

Just as the French lanugage slipped into disuse, they create Official
Authorities to maintain it. Which only makes it disappear faster. French
is completely dead as an international language, and is being replaced
within France as a technical/scientific language by English.

And now, just as books are beginning to be replaced by a new medium,
people want to set up standards to regulate them. Great! With a bunch of
motorcycle book cops, the new writers will just go somewhere else: text
on CD, on nets, on hypertext, multimedia, etc.

Let's rephrase "the owl of Minerva flies at dusk" into "the bats come out
at dusk."
