Many of us have been using Jade for the same thing for a year or so. The question is: why does this need to be *standardized*? You are talking about a very application-specific language. Was RPG a formal ISO or ANSI standard? Did you really care one way or the other? You've got a tool that does the report generation you need. Why does that language have to be a "standard" for it to be useful? There are many languages and tools in the world that are useful despite not having a standards body's seal of approval.
