IBC Standards for VT?

I am wondering what the IBC Standards are for VTs? I do not seem to be able to find a collection of standards on the IBC website and would like to better educate myself on the ideal form.

From what I gather, there used to be standards for the VT but have been since removed but also from what I heard I think they are reworking them to add them back into the game but not being an IBC member I say this without certainty, I just remember reading about that a while ago. I remembering something about all fins touching ideally of course not completely like HMs but they should meet somewhere. Hopefully someone around when they had the VT standards may pop in.

That's unfortunate, I understand people don't really breed them anymore. Hopefully someone knows of the old standards and can share :)

When I see how exacting the Betta Standards are it makes me wonder how in the Goldfish World we made it all these year. I quota from the Ranchu Standard, "The Ranchu should be a beautiful, well balanced fish that can swim well. A deformed Ranchu will never be beautiful. One will see immediately, if a Ranchu is a good." of course there are standards besides this but it is so subjective. Then there are the rule differences between Japanese, Chinese and American (European) rules.
