being an active OGC standards writer myself I'd say: OGC standards are free &
open, so no problem duplicating them elsewhere, as long as 2 caveats are followed:
- should be clearly marked as a non-authoritative copy
- is on risk of getting outdated, obviously, unless some "nightly" pull
mechanism gets installed

But this is just me, informally, who gets his hands dirty with doing stuff - for
sure an official OGC position should be sought.

my 2 cents,
