LXer: Bait and Switch

Published at LXer:

Promises have been made. Assurances have been given. Commitments have been proffered. But far less has been delivered. We heard over and over again that we should approve OOXML because that was the only way to ensure that the format remain open. The first version might be a mess, but if we approve it just this once, the future versions will be developed in openness and transparency. But Ecma is really seeking to transfer to SC34 the responsibility of spending the next 3 years fixing errors in OOXML 1.0, while future versions of OOXML ("technical revisions") are controlled by Microsoft, in Ecma, in a process without transparency, and as should now be obvious to all, without sufficient quality controls.
