A similar response came from Patrick Durusau, an ODF coeditor who has vocally
supported<http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20080224-odf-backer-urges-cooperation-to-fix-ooxmls-deficiencies.html>ISO
standardization for OOXML. Although Durusau believes that OOXML is a
"poster child for the open standards development process," he
says<http://www.durusau.net/publications/adhocrules.pdf>that ad hoc
rules and "process failures" had a detrimental impact on the
OOXML revision and approval effort. Durusau
calls<http://www.durusau.net/publications/placeatthetable.pdf>for
standards process reforms and argues that ISO needs to be more
inclusive.
