Then how about making periodic releases of all ANSI (IEEE, etc.) standards
and current drafts on CD ROMs?  Of couse, then we'd have to create a new
committee to define the cross index and search/retrieval data interface.  ;^)

Seriously, this would allow us to create platform independent CD ROMs.
Machine dependent retrieval software often is included on CD ROMS due to
lack of said standards.
