My take is that a change in an OGC standard might trigger an update to 
docs for a packaged application, but it is not the role of OSGeo-Live to 
emphasise compliance of packaged applications on OSGeo-Live projects.

Ie, we might want to update our documentation about OGC standards, and 
maybe also update Project Overview docs to note compliance/non 
compliance of projects.
