Interesting read. Just sniffed around a bit and found Introducing The Hague
Declaration<http://www.consortiuminfo.org/standardsblog/article.php?story=20080512141838422>After
weaknesses exposed by the recent farce around
OOXML<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_Open_XML#Criticism>this
seems like an important initiative.
