For the BRM to be successful at least 2/3 of the votes should be YES and no more than 1/4 of them NO.  I'm certain that it failed be the first part doesn't appear to be met (only 60% YES when only counting those who voted YES or NO, much less when counting abstains) and possibly the second part wasn't met either (40% NO when only counting those who voted YES or NO).

The BRM chair should recommend referring the issue to OASIS TC for ODF.  Further, he also needs to recommend that ISO look at stripping ECMA of its fast track ability.  Only NBs should be allowed fast track and no one else.
