Well, I am not sure. It looks to me that the ICBN is a lot like a swamp: 
most people are aware that they do not know what is in it and are glad to 
keep well away from it.

but few actually sit down and study it! ;-)

***
merely sitting down and studying it is not enough: it is too big for that.
I have said it before: it would be a good thing if there was a decent
"Guide to using the ICBN".
