This fits with the rest of the disgraceful behaviour by Microsoft in the same period, discrediting both themselves and the ISO standards process. Microsoft Brazil has a track record of heavy-handed politics too.

No doubt about it in my mind, either ISO puts its shop in order very soon or it ceases to be the standards-authority-of-record for software and the Internet. And "in order" means a serious root-and-branch change, not a few tweaks to the set of flakey gentlemens' agreements that seem to rule now. Only fly in this ointment is WTO, watch for heavy lobbying there RSN.
