I haven't evaluated them yet. It would probably be about a hundred times
easier to have them in a separate document.

Regarding OSI being a membership organization, the sad reality is that
having OSI join standards organizations and flying around to meet with all
of them costs a lot of money. But I did not find the individual membership
fee to be any sort of hardship.
