Because it is a draft IEC Guide, produced I assume under the auspices of the IEC Advisory Committee
on Information Security and Data Privacy. However, curiously, it doesn't appear under the
Guides/Projects tab on ACSEC's page

IEC Guides are standards for standards.

Apples and Oranges. No standards document ever appears until it is published. Draft documents are
not yet published (that is the meaning of the word "draft"). They are circulated amongst
participating countries (in the case of Guides, I understand all members of IEC) for comment. That's
what is happening with this one.

It needs work. I suggest people get involved. If y'all call up the BSI enough times, I bet they'll
get a copy out for comments.
