I think they just made a copy into comctl32, but this is more of a gut
feel than anything else :) Anyway, MS now documents the standard controls
together with the common ones (which makes sense, logically they belong
together, they are all controls after all), so my comment is OK for its 
purpose (which is to correctly identify the piece of documentation that
the audit was against).
