This is probably due to the fact that historically, the BSI has been one
of the Institutes which has been willing to say no to Microsoft (e.g.,
Managed C++) and is one of the more likely institutions to reject OXML.

Some have a feeling that OpenDocument was rushed far too quickly through
ISO, and the BSI are amongst those who've indicated in the past they
don't want to see that mistake being repeated.
