: You still need to read their quality policy to know what it is,
: and on average, the ISO9000 certified ones contain less usable
: or even readable information, than the other kind.

ISO 9000 only requires like 3 or 5 documents.  Small companies can
comply with just a notebook that contains these documents, assuming
that the quality policy doesn't require more...
