QTI 2.1 draft specification has been removed from the IMS website

In the last few days the QTI 2.1 draft specification has been removed
from the IMS website, citing a lack of participation:

The IMS QTIv2.1 draft specification has been removed from the IMS
website
. Adequate feedback on the specification has not been received,
and therefore, the specification has been put back into the IMS
project group process for further work.

The education community pushed a strong reaction in the IMS-QTI mailing list and I really hope the spec leaders will rethink their decision. Otherwise, excellent education resources - like OLAT for example - will miss a standard and eventually we will observe the chaos of ten years ago (when every company invented their own specification).
IMO: not nice :(

Update: a forum was created to discuss this issue.
