Standards committee turf wars
This item, a dispute and "turf war" between two standards committees, is nothing new in this relatively fractured world of standards development. Liaisons between committees help, but, as this article shows, doesn't always solve the problem. IETF is a relative upstart in this world, so it isn't surprising to me that such a dispute would have occurred. It wasn't the first and won't be the last.
