Seems that the ODF Alliance is going to have to give up on ISO as a
credible organisation to manage the ODF standard into the future if it
allows the relevant committees to be stacked by Microsoft employees
and hangers-on.

ISO is supposed to be for the benefit of vendors and custopers, but
with respect to file standards seems to becoming vendor-centric.
