But where is the problem? Either OOXML *is* ISO standard or is not ISO-standard. 

If the problem is however that MS is 'meddling' in the standard, then it is a political issue
that requires policy responses - not a question of software development.

There is no tomorrow (or "finally") for it - MS wins today.

life is not a pony farm and competition is not a throw with cotton balls. It is about the
competition and we have to face, and not whine.
