OOXML Follow Up

Depois da recusa da ISO para agir aos quatro apelos contra o OOXML, seis países (África do Sul, Brasil, Venezuela, Equador, Paraguai e Cuba) reagiram nestes termos:

Given the organisation’s inability to follow its own rules we are no longer confident that ISO/IEC will be capable of transforming itself into the open and vendor-neutral standards setting organisation which is such an urgent requirement. What is now clear is that we will have to, albeit reluctantly, re-evaluate our assessment of ISO/IEC, particularly in its relevance to our various national government interoperability frameworks. Whereas in the past it has been assumed that an ISO/IEC standard should automatically be considered for use within government, clearly this position no longer stands.
