Actually, NIST seems to be following ISFG. FTDNA does not follow NIST's standard (SRM2395) for Y-GATA-H4. See:

http://www.cstl.nist.gov/biotech/strbase/YSTRs/H4_nomenclature.htm

The standard does not cover DYS452 and DYS463. Since John Butler was on the ISFG committee and noted the conversion for Y-GATA-H4, I think we can be certain that any future standards will follow ISFG guidelines.
