This is an interesting question, but probably one that needs to be asked at DCMI and not here. 
My personal opinion, from previous involvement with Dublin Core, is that the main difference between a `dct:Standard` and a standard in the ISO sense is that a `dct:Standard` is not a _document_, but the _concept_ of a set of rules, instructions or other kinds of guidance. In other words, a `dct:Standard` is the '_information_' mentioned in Note 2 under **normative document** in your text above. For example, when I tell the children "No running in the corridor", that can be a `dct:Standard`, even if it is not written down in a 'document' of some sort. 
However, I am not sure whether it is necessary to include explanations of the similarities to or differences with ISO terminology.
