"... the US will diplomatically lobby foreign governments to adopt the standards ..."
The US rarely uses diplomacy, unless this is what you call financial or industrial blackmail. Even the UK is susceptible to it.
The French, however, are not as Charles de Gaulle, despite his many faults, taught the Frogs to tell the US to take a hike. Cost them nothing; kept their self-respect and really pissed off the USA who grudgingly gave them cookie points.
Meanwhile Britain has allowed the US National Security Agency to set up it's very own spy base in Yorkshire whilst the US Air Force treats the UK like a land-locked aircraft carrier and even used British airports for 'black' rendition flights.
