"The C#/CLI standards were also developed at Ecma International..."

Weren't they mostly developed at Microsoft, "handed to" ECMA, and slightly polished by a committee for publication? After all, Microsoft invented both C# and the CLI, on which many parts of the .NET Framework, etc., depend. So it could hardly allow a non-Microsoft group to make arbitrary changes to them. Please correct me if I'm wrong about this.
