Apparently the terms "ISO 3602" and "ISO 3602 Strict" do appear to be
well understood. Unfortunately, a Google search turns up the Wikipedia
pages, a number of sites where I can order a copy of the standard, and a
ton of pages from the knockoff sites that simply parrot Wikipedia's
content, change the layout, and add advertising. Lots of hits no longer
translates to lots of information.

I hope someone with access to an actual copy of ISO 3602 will come
forth. ISO wants USD 48 for it.
