Jeff,
        one point to consider here. Yes the new standards may be more robust
and 'less' prone to misinterpretation, if they are very well written.
However Gerber has been around for decades in it's varied and different
formats, it is still being misinterpreted. How would Dieter brush off the
possibility that Gencam or other new standard would also not possibly be
misinterpreted even 10 years down the road? Utopian divine intervention on
behalf of the new standard over the old standards?
