Ralph, I believe that ISO reference numbers are not a requirement but a 
strong preference. I suggest that we investigate in greater depth; Gary 
Robinson may be able to assist. I think it likely that references to IEEE 
standards are grudgingly accepted.

By the way, IEEE 1394 is in the process of international standardization 
and may be approved by the time SPC-2 reaches the desk of an ISO/IEC editor.

In any case, I don't believe this has a bearing on the matter at hand, a 
draft American National Standard. We may address the particulars of 
internationalization later.
