RFC 1142 [RFC1142] was a republication of ISO DP 10589 originally provided as a service to the Internet community. However, ISO DP 10589 was an ISO "Draft Proposal", which differed in a considerable number of significant respects from the final standardized version published as ISO/IEC 10589 [ISO10589-First-Edition], and subsequently revised as ISO/IEC 10589 Second Edition [ISO10589-Second-Edition]. It has been an ongoing source of confusion when RFC 1142 has been unwittingly quoted or referenced in place of ISO/IEC 10589 itself.
