RE: ISO 11179
| I believe that this criterion (sometimes called the "thunk | factor") is a completely erroneous way of evaluating | specifications that fails to take into account other factors. | | Joe I do not believe I suggested taking the page count as a sole criterion for evaluating standards. I believe the naming standard is too long, and I illustrated this with a page count. There is plenty of merit in especially the UBL NDR, but the length of those kind of standards is IMO a main factor hindering their acceptance.
