The vote was based on the assumption that the CD-ROM would contain 
"all IEEE 802 standards available at that point in time..." This was 
in a note attached to the motion. The point was also raised during 
the discussion.

So, now it seems that IEEE will prohibit the CD from including 
standards not already  on the web. This does change the picture.
