Two questions have arisen wrt this:

 1) Why "Draft Standard"?

    My mistake -- I misunderstood the IETF nomenclature -- all we need
    is for [IRI-BIS] to be published as an RFC with an RFC number.

 2) What "reasons outside its editors' control"?

    I don't trust my memory of the relevant rumours sufficiently to
    commit it to print: Martin, would you care to hazard a guess as to
    when [IRI-BIS] might be published as an RFC, and/or tell us what
    the hold-up was or is?
