One of the stupider ISO decisions, as English supports no accents, except in 
loanwords, and they are just ignored, except possibly in academic publishing.

I think it is time native English language speakers push back against and ignore 
decisions made by international committees of non-native English language 
speakers, to try and change what native English language speakers use to what 
the foreign language uses in Latin alphabet transliterations, just as the other 
100+ countries who have no "official" transliteration do.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis			Calgary, Alberta, Canada
