With the asterisk debate postponed, the delegates in Dubai have arrived at the meat of the proposed treaty on international telecoms and are hitting deadlocks which make one wonder if any of them have seen the proposals before. The USA has been busy reiterating that it wants the ITU to stay in the first couple of ISO layers, …
"the conference centre locks up at one in the morning and no one is expecting much to be resolved by then "

ITU to stay in the first couple of ISO layers
Well, given that X.400 and X.500 and H.323 (to pick a few at random) are application layer standards, I'd say they'd already planted their flag on the summit some long time ago.
Re: ITU to stay in the first couple of ISO layers
Too bad they planted it on the wrong summit. X.400 and X.500 are never, ever, going to be the dominant standard except in countries where use of SMTP and LDAP carries the death penalty.
H.323 merely demonstrates the simplicity, superiority and ease of use of SIP and IETF engineering standards in general.
