The World of ATA connectors...

There has been many objections to having specific manufacturer's part 
numbers in the proposed ATA standards.  There are two approaches to solve 
this:  find the connectors defined in other documents and reference them, 
or create the necessary information in the ATA document.  Personally (as 
editor) I like the first approach, but I don't know where to find such 
references.  Thus the reason for this message:


Can we find references in EIA, IEEE, ANSI, ISO or other standards for any 
of the following connectors (or their equivalent)?

AMP      1-480424-0              4 pin power connector (plus pins...)
MOLEX    5484  39-27-0032        3 pin power connector
AMP      61664-1 and 62137-2     Ground connector
3M       3417-7000 (and mate)    40 pin connector
Dupont   86451 and 86455         50 (44) 2 mm connector
??       PCMCIA connector        68 pin connector

All of these are referenced in the proposed ATA standards either by part 
number or reference to PCMCIA.  

1)  Can you find a standard that contains any of these?
2)  Are you willing to provide or help provide the necessary drawings and 
dimensions for the same?

As an IC vendor, I really didn't want to send this message as I'll never 
need them, but it will benefit the standards to solve the problem.

Thanks in advance....
