OOXML and Poisonous Fish

The Open Sourcerer writes "Alex Brown, the chap who has the unenviable task of convening the forthcoming BRM in February for Microsoft/ECMA's OOXML document specification, has posted a few first snippets from the initial meeting of the body called the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC34 — Document Description and Processing Languages... In his most recent blog post, covering the opening meetings in Kyoto Japan of the SC34, there are some interesting titbits. I was struck by the list of individuals resigning their posts or stepping down. It's quite a few people. I don't know if it is common to lose so many in one go, or how many they represent as a percentage of the total. But still, I found it odd that 4 senior figures all decide to go at the same time. The last one he mentioned is the now famous Martin Bryan... Let's hope that the Fugu was as well prepared as the SC34 needs to be next February."
