Meaning of the word STANDARD (was RE: Standards (yet again) was RE:Use of XML ?)

A standard is any concept, convention, technique or physical form that serves as a blame deflection gambit to individuals engaged in spending other peoples time and money. Anything that has been written about by a respected source or endorsed by a government or corporation or just advertised heavily qualifies. The only proviso is that those individuals who may be on the receiving end of the Reductio Ad Mensura argument must have heard about it from some source other than the individual that stands before them, rationalizing their actions in terms of "following the standard".
