No, Jonathan, it's not that simple. I've read through these specifications. At some point I decided that they were horrible enough that putting in the effort for a complete understanding of them was an astounding waste of time. I've evaluated these specifications, and found them wanting in dire ways. That's very different from not having bothered. Don't take rejection for ignorance, even if it suits your own view.
