I like this but I'm under the impression that these are ISTO IEEE numbers 
and not sure we can just add the prefix.

An other alternative is to keep the same number, but have some letter 
prefixes, such as CS to mean candidate standard.
 
Thus the official PWG number for a Candidate Standard versus Standard for 
Skywritting would be:
 
Ex CS-5300.1 = Skywriting Print Standard (Candidate Standard) 
   STD-5350.1 = Skywriting Print Standard (STANDARD) 
 
For example, I seem to recall that ANSI standards say BSR nnnn for a draft 
standard (which stands for Board of Standard Review, as I recall) while 
the standard is being voted on.

Don, we're struggling in the PWG process discussion about ISTO numbers and 
when and how they should be assigned in the process. First, we said no 
ISTO number until STANDARD. Some feel Candidate Standards should have 
numbers and we're considering a hack on the numbering to indicate CS from 
STANDARD. 

Ex 5300.1 = Skywriting Print Standard (Candidate Standard) 
   5350.1 = Skywriting Print Standard (STANDARD) 

You (and others) must have experience with IEEE standards progression 
(1284.x). Can you shed some light on the IEEE/ISTO numbering, what level 
of maturity they expect when a number is assigned, how we might go about 
assigning numbers to CS as well as S?
