just makes iso look bad

The whole thing just makes ISO look bad.  That any one company can so obviously skew the process to push such a big standard through a fast track process is bad enough.  That ISO would even let such a large standard with so many comments try to be resolved by a single week BRM is quite laughable.

Laughable but not funny.  It is simply sad that so much time and effort and public money is being wasted in dealing with this abuse of of the organisation.  One that is there presumably to serve the needs of ALL interested parties, not just a single company.

Will it even really matter in the end?  If the company pushes this through the system they may get a few more years out of their monopoly, but an ISO mark doesn't make a rubbish standard a golden one.  And neither is it any guarantee of success in the marketplace.
