A trademark will do a better job of doing that than copyrights ever would
have anyway.

@Gary: A standard is described by a specification - indeed one standard
could be described by many specifications (for example, one official
specification and one reverse engineered from a compliant implementation).
Ideally you want your standard to be well described in specifications
(supported by test suites, interop bake-offs, etc.) such that the
implementations are interoperable.
