No, I'm saying the current OID for ISUP refers specifically to an ITU-T
Recomendation, not the concept of "ISUP" (the OID is owned by ITU). To
refer to, lets say, an ANSI version would require an ANSI OID.

Yeah. So this seems to be too complicated, which is why we just say "QSIG".

I don't think it is as important since most implementation have already
converged to the ISO standard
