I am.  No need to wait though.

Gosh, I'm so used to developing Standards and tracking Standards in
progress that I'd disagree.  I don't see a good reason to not track
Standards, when we are reasonably sure we know the direction they are
going in.  (No user burn.)

People that want older Standards, can always ask for them, if you want
to support that.

I don't see the opinions or their documentation as wrong.  -fstd=
allows the ultimate in control, for those that need/want it.  I don't
see much benefit in having -ansi hang back.
