So some people can't read and/or are deliberately misrepresenting fd.o.  Find 
those people and beat them severely.

Which is a bit of an empty directive without actual names of people to go 
after and brutalize.  So, I must ask the crowd: who out there is actually 
saying is a formal standardization body capable of enforcing 
the adoption of technologies or components?

If you can't answer that question with the name of a particular individual, 
then you may now stop squawking about "misrepresentation", because you've 
disproved your own assertion.
