Correction: 639-3 has not yet advanced to the FDIS (final draft int'l
standard) stage. It is currently under ballot as DIS, which ballot
period closes in a few weeks. If approved without a large number of
technical comments (which I anticipate), it will be submitted for FDIS
ballot, but if not approved or if there are many comments requesting
technical changes, then it could remain at the DIS stage.
