I'd be interested too. My main reason to belive the committee provides no value is as follows:

If creators of databases don't follow the standard ... then the standard is meaningless.

If creators of databases do follow the standard ... then they have commiditized their offerings and the result will be (A) purchases based on price alone, and (B) Microsoft wins.
