>  From a recent IEEE 802.16 announcement:
>  >We'll be working hard to get the standard professionally edited (by
>  >IEEE Staff Project Editor Don Messina) and published sometime in
>  >March.
>  >All IEEE standards shall be updated within five years of the date of
>  >publication.  If the standard is not revised, reaffirmed, or withdrawn
>  >within five years, the Sponsor will be notified that it will be submitted
>  >to the Standards Board for administrative withdrawal.

considering that this would delete most of the standards documents
on which the internet runs, i can see why you would consider this a
problem.  but luckily, it is not our problem.
