Din Swashes?

Recently read on a ATypI mailing list between two type designers:

  1. Message: Wait and see! 2005 will include some surprises for the DIN Familiy as well…
  2. Answer to message: Swashes and ligatures for DIN? Come on! Yet, even those must be DINed under German law.

Does its funny for non type designers as well?
