Showdown in Geneva: OOXML Fails to Achieve Majority Approval at BRM
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, February 29 2008 @ 09:47 AM CST

Andy, I'm very familiar with the JTC1 directives... the one that you quote only applies if the room FAILS to get concensus, in which case the P members take over.

In this case though, looking at the numbers you quote, concensus was indeed reached in the room. So all that you draw on doesn't apply. You are essentially saying that you believe that the majority of the room should not have bothered making the trip, as you don't see value in their being in Geneva!

Your rationale essentially disenfranchises the many O countries present.

The decisions were made by everybody present, all views count. The result proves it.

Shame on you... this is a global society, we all count.
