On the one hand, it is really very nice that open source developers are 
being invited by 3M into this process (ditto for you inviting us in as 
well, to the extent that you're allowed to). ++ all around.

On the other hand, I am wondering why effort on 3M SIP would be more 
valuable in the long term than comparable effort on the continued 
evolution (and adoption) of NCIP?

I've read the March 2010 press release from 3M about the SIP 3 
development process, and was a bit surprised to see that it gives a 
small nod to "ISO standards" but doesn't even mention NCIP. Is the NCIP 
development process broken?
