  Ok, so you're saying "not my problem, so I won't let anyone else fix it"?  
The fact that we have this long thread, that long bug report, mail to country 
reps, and other bugs/complaints in the past indicates that there is a 
problem, and it is actually a huge waste of time.  If you want to go to the 
lengths that ISO went to and define and document your policies and 
procedures, put them online for everyone to see, and setup a respected 
dispute resolution mechanism, then sure you can do that.  I suppose your time 
is better spent elsewhere though.
