The VCB spec (VP8 in ISO) is in DIS ballot, and the ballot closes in
ISO processes are complex, and I don't always understand them, but if
the ballot results are positive, the standard should be approved.

So far, we have not seen any official feedback, but all the unofficial
feedback I've seen has been more or less editorial in nature.

There are no technical changes that would cause any issues in
compatibility between VP8 and VCB.
