That's correct. LISAsoft contributed KML styling support to OL for an 
OGC testbed (OWS 5.1) for example. And as part of the CGDI Pilot [1] we 
implemented (and contributed back) GeoRSS support in OpenLayers.

It requires a fair bit of effort (and money) to participate in these 
testbeds and will not be easy for the community as such to do. As an 
organisation that wants to participate, it pays to keep an eye on what 
testbeds become available and put in your bid to do your bit!
Only a week ago OGC announced their CFP for OWS-7 [2] (closing date: 1 
December 2009).
