Perhaps we can just agree that we differ?

I support international uniformity in standards unless there's a very 
good reason to do otherwise.  I suppose that's partly due to my spending 
the last 15 years of my working life as an analyst/programmer with the 
international search & rescue community.  In so many ways (both critical 
and trivial), I've seen the positive benefits of falling into line, and 
the negative consequences of failing to do so.

You're not going to convince me that Australia should go it's own way 
without mounting a stronger case.  That's not to say that in general I 
won't follow the standards adopted within Australia.
