Expansion of the agenda of WTO?

At the 8-19 October 2007 meeting of the SPS committee of the WTO, the Members discussed the possibility of increasing the transparency of standards set by private firms. Will the WTO further expand its scope to become a WSO (World Standard Organization)?

Contrary to the boring headlines, the headline of this news item, "'untransparent' private standards criticized in a week of more transparency", is also both interesting and provocative.
