Okay, John - noted.

3.1 is indeed rather long in the tooth, the portion (Core) which became
the ISO standard dates back to Oct. 2005.  It would be hard to do 5.0
with 5.0 not yet released, there had been some talk of refreshing with
4.1, but as hinted there's not anything specific happening at the
moment, and maybe 5.0 would make some sense.
