Somewhat related, I tried contacting the C/C++ committee to have
concerns addressed several years ago. I was not able to reach the
committee. There's no mailing list or discussion group available to
the public at large. It looks like one of those groups where the
committee only talks with the companies that build compilers.
Outsiders (like compiler users) are not welcomed.
