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.
