Couldn't a group petition from the IETF request ISO and their member states to reconsider the use fee based standards?
This concept is incompatible with most current standards developments, be it in the IETF, W3C, or industry consortia as well a with Open Source.

Fee based standards represent an hurdle for innovation and adoption of new technology.

> In general, the IETF tends to dislike using standards where the specification is not freely available in English. That last part, in English, is perhaps narrow-minded these days, but the IETF works in English.  Also, note that I said “tends to dislike” and didn’t claim a hard rule always enforced.  In the past, where there have been issues, it has been not uncommon to write internet-drafts and publish through CFRG; see for many examples. Sometimes they are published as individual stream RFC’s; see for a highly applicable example.
