Technical Summary

   RFC 1142[RFC1142] was a republication of ISO DP 10589 originally provided as
   a service to the Internet community.  However, ISO DP 10589 was an ISO
   "Draft Proposal" which differed in a considerable number of significant
   respects from the final standardised version published as ISO/IEC
   10589[ISO10589-First-Edition], and subsequently revised as ISO/IEC 10589
   second edition[ISO10589-Second-Edition].  It has been an ongoing source of
   confusion when RFC 1142 has been unwittingly quoted or referenced in place
   of ISO/IEC 10589 itself.

   This document obsoletes RFC 1142 and moves it to historic status. This approach
   is taken rather than simply moving 1142 to historic so that a document will be 
   published that presents an overview of the reasoning.

Working Group Summary:

   No controversy and quickly moved forward with full support.

Document Quality:

   N/A

Personnel:

   Christian Hopps is the Document Shepherd
   Adrian Farrel is the Responsible Area Director
