standards are written by internationally recognized independent 
organisations, v.s. everyone can write a recommendation. For you, and 
others this doesn't matter, for others it does. Why do you think Microsoft 
made part of .NET a standard? They could perfectly write up recommendations 
on .NET themselves, written drafts, or RFCs and leave it at that.
