Some of the encoding stds are not that bad. The X series and colored
books are from the CCITT era, that BTW given that they were
"Recommendations" many phone companies and equipment vendors didn't
give a squat and implemented them as they pleased, interoperability
was a challenge and sort of an art of the dark ages of

I still remember getting my butt smoked trying to get a derivate
Spanish implementation of X.25 talking with the Turkish one.

ITU has nothing to do with managing Internet address and name space,
