The purpose of nbdkit is to be a server for qemu, to be a replacement
for qemu-nbd in cases where proprietary code cannot be combined with
qemu for copyright/licensing/legal reasons.  So we aim to make sure we
can interoperate with qemu.  No need to change any standards for
nbdkit!  Clarifying standards documents is OK though.
