Who exactly is being paid back, and for what?

Well, yes, because most of the upgrade countries voted to approve, and most, as I recall, had no or very few comments - not much nuance there.

I do agree that there is nuance, but unfortunately that nuance is within a National Body, which then votes as a unit.  If there are enough votes within the National Body on any given comment, it's either included or it's not.

I was wrong, by the way, about Adobe's PDF submissions going to JTC1 SC 34 (see the correction I added yesterday above).  Apparently each of the Adobe PDF submissions have gone directly to ISO TC 171, and not to ISO/IEC JTC1 SC 34, the way other document format standards do.  The world of ISO/IEC is pretty complex, and there's a lot about how it works that I'm still trying to learn.
