John, I believe this language accurately describes the dissemination of the
documents at present---without passwords. SBP-2 and most of the draft
standards have carried this notice since the first day they saw print and I
believe that it is adequate.

When I have distributed copies of the draft standards to individuals it has
been for the purpose of eliciting comment that would in turn advance work on
the draft. If that is not within the domain of "standardization activities",
what is?
