Oliver Bell just informed me that South Korea has decided to vote for approval of DIS 29500 (Open XML) as an ISO standard. This is a change from their original "no with comments" posisiton they took back in September, and is great news. South Korea was definitely influential in some of the bigger decisions made in the BRM, and it's great to see that they are now in favor of ISO approval.
