I would have thought that they would both be canidates.  One is as common as 
the other, and there is so much overlap that it seems wasteful to me to 
ignore aggregate data.

There are several real world examples already collected on the wiki, as well 
as ones I already posted to the mailing list.  I was now trying to establish 
"what previous standards are people actually using today", which as I've 
already stated appear to be limited to statistical and (apparently) 
programming standards.  Of course, if you don't want to talk about how 
professionals have been doing it for hundreds of years...
