One thing to keep in mind is that both UCI and WTC would like a global rule book. USAT, the French federation and a few others have been against this. This is why the US has a snorkel rule and higher wetsuit temp rules than most of the rest of the world.
EDIT: Wanda owns a race production company that's putting on a few ITU races as well.
