Adobe was able to do that with the 32000-1 spec, because it owned it...

But 32000-2 is entirely an ISO-developed/owned document, so we have no control.

Groups like the PDF Association (http://www.pdfa.org) are trying to find ways to make it available...

will Adobe release a public version of the PDF 2.0 spec (in a similar way
was published)?
