  I feel it is preferable to have one organisation coordinating the 
development of standards as it reduces the potential for creation of 
competing and overlapping standards.
Over time the OGC has developed and refined processes and expertise in 
developing standards. I feel it is preferable to improve on an existing 
system, rather than starting again from scratch. To OGC's credit, they 
have an excellent track record of listening to the community and 
adopting new ideas, and as such we should consider this path first.
