A vote against standardization

Here is my vote against official standardization.
Let me add my voice to those of Alan and John. I think it is
premature to form an explicit standard. I also feel that the drive
for standardization should be undertaken by us when we have some kind
of concensus that it is a desirable thing, not because of pressure
from external parties who have little or no commitment to the language
(I would place the IEEE people in this category).
