ISO9000 has no requirement that you try to do better.

ISO9000's only requires that you can document how crap your wares are,
and that you can document how you determined that.

You can be ISO9000 certified with this QA process:

	"Kick a tire, listen for rattling sound, if not too bad
	sounding, check 'Inspection OK' box on price-sign".

The only thing you have to document subsequently, is that all cars
had at least one tire kicked.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
