those are only a small subset, the pdf standard is not among them, is
it? So, yes I should have said *most* iso standards are to be paid for.
It is here:
and it is more expensive than I remembered, somewhat in the ball park of
$250 per copy, but still I think the community should be able to afford
that, if that is what it takes.
We do have a good chance to outrun a lot of the commercial applications
when producing PDF from TeX (or rather luatex) but it is a little
hampered if one has looses, e.g., transparency in graphics, if one sets
the pdf version to 2
