I think that's reversed: DSA2 is quickly becoming a de facto standard,
but it is not a de jure standard.
De facto: "in fact". De jure: "in law". De jure standards exist on
paper but are not respected, de facto standards exist in reality but may
not exist on paper.
If I am mistaken as to what you meant to say, please correct me. :)
