I am in favor of providing a reference to a OGC standards URL.

I think this URL should point to a landing page of OGC where the
partnership relation between OGC and OSGeo becomes clear, and the
relation of OGC to the OSGeo-Live software stack.

I cc'ed this mail to Athina, who probably can find out who can help on
behalf of OGC, if this is the option that the OSGeo community preferes.
