After the OOXML chaos in Sweden

As a result of the OOXML voting chaos here in Sweden has the Swedish standardization institute now changed its rules. At the OOXML voting several new members attended in the last minutes before the vote after being promised marketing money from big daddy Microsoft. Sweden did not vote in ISO because of this.

In the future must a member have been member for at least three weeks in the working group to be able to participate in the voting.
