Don't be silly, Pete.  There will be no "shakeup" simply because a small 
group wrote a bandplan in secret.  The trouble comes later, as that plan begins to 
cause stress among amateurs over who is "following the bandplan" or not.  
There have already been on-air threats of violence made against AMers in relation 
to the new bandplan.  

It will also be a point of stress for hi-fi SSB stations, users of vintage 
gear of all kinds, and various digital mode users.

Later still, the IARU bandplan will be held up as an example for other 
band-planners, such as the ARRL.  And later still, there will be a move to make it 
part of the FCC rules.
