Of course, if you made ZIP and ISO standard you would have exactly the 
same problem, right?  You would need to process any external normative 
references in that specification as RER's.  So there is really no net 
savings by taking a IS route over an RER route for ZIP.  It is the same 
ripple effect either way.
