Submission + - Microsoft Office XML fast-tracked to ISO standard!

carlmenezes writes: Jeremy Reimer from Ars Technica writes about OpenXML getting fast tracked to become a standard — "The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), in a surprise move, has announced that it is putting Microsoft's Open XML format — the file format used for Office 2007 — on the fast track to become a full ISO standard. An e-mail by Lisa Rajchel, the secretariat of ISO's Joint Technical Committee, confirmed this decision. The move puts the document format on a five-month schedule that could see Open XML ratified as an open standard as early as this August." He also asks, "Is the war really over if both sides have won?" How long is pure information portability going to take?
