Microsoft ask for votes to support OOXML

An anonymous reader writes "I live in Mexico and today received a call from a Microsoft representative to be part of the commission in my country to vote for the approval of Office Open XML (OOXML). After talked with this representative I found something interesting... if you tell them that you will support them you will receive the documentation to 'enroll' you in the 'committee' and make all the arrangements with the National Chamber for IT and Telecommunications (I don't know what they will do if you refuse to support them but I'm thinking about it ...). So here is my question. Is this happening in other countries? Have any other slashdotters received similar calls?"
