This is a big step forward since there were no standards for it before. In other news, I hear they've recently accepted the wheel there, and are calling it a 'mechanical thingamajig'. Perhaps soon they will stop burning scientists at the stake for claiming that the Earth is not the center of the universe. Naaah! Please, keep the FSM jokes to a maximum."
