	Sorry. In this context STANDARD is also what people percieve
 the standard to be, not what the bodies say (have we already
 forgotten what happened to the nice HTML 3.0?)

	To an extend, a standard unix is one which does not muck up
 ed, sed, vi, and Emacs, as well as /bin/sh. I think we should not
 arbitarily ignore defacto standards, or else it shall rebound on us.
