An other ISO standard slowly coming are SI units, i.e., the metric system, -- the hell might freeze over before the US starts to use it.
Well, that's just stupidity on the part of the US. Every other industrialized country has standardized on SI. In fact, are there even any other countries that have not standardized on SI?
I even recall hearing that the US is "officially" metric. It's about time American citizens were dragged into the 19th century and forced to learn about kilograms, metres and litres! :-)
