I have noticed that the US seems to regard it's own standards as
"Standards" and any non US (usually ISO) standards as an imposition....
I once asked a US Engineer to supply documentation on A4 and he refused
to be forced into a "European standard" and was only going to use the
"Standard" Letter size that "everyone" uses!
