Z39.53 was approved in Aug. 2001 and published. There were few comments at
the balloting stage and it was unanimously approved. See:
> In passing, was NISO Z39.53 (the US national standard equating to ISO
> 639-2) passed, exactly as it stood, as the final draft on NISO's web
> site? I haven't had time to check out the final situation. I assume
> that no changes were likely to it.
> It's a very nice standard, is NISO Z39.53 - very straightforward.
