Submission + - Adobe Releases PDF 1.7 to ISO Standards Committee

Ifyou are wondering why Adobe is releasing PDF 1.7 to the ISO committee,I suspect it is becausemany governments are requiring standards based purchasing requirements and I imagine that Adobe wanted to become a de facto standard in how information was shared in an organization (well duh!)."
