I'd be very happy to simply see some form of universal standardization. I personally like Han Yu pin yin as it would go on board ISO standards of 1982...

I'm not sure what prompted the grave-dig. (BTW, the ISO write-up on Pinyin is poor. I don't recommend it.)

But as long as this is up, I might as well bring this back on topic and mention that it appears the DPP has not abandoned its opposition to Hanyu Pinyin or support for Tongyong Pinyin (even though I suspect few with the party have any idea about either system). Meanwhile, the KMT has not exactly been standing up for Hanyu Pinyin, with the government allowing names already established in Hanyu Pinyin to be changed to different systems (e.g., Danshui --> Tamsui and Lugang --> Lukang).
