RE: SC6 N 11235 (Proposed Procedures for ISO/IEC SC6 and IEEE 802 Co-operative working)

Is this true?  ISO/IEC Directives says that any P-member, i.e. a NB,
or Cat A liaison may propose that an existing standard from any source can
be submitted directly for Fast Track. The ITTF then have to sort out
any copyright blah blah so the text may be distributed without
restriction etc. So the note is strictly correct; but some clarification
would perhaps be of benefit :-)
