Under the VRML97 process and in the X3D/VRML200n 
process, the spec has been available at every 
stage of the process.  The standard drafts have 
been as well.  It is the final published from 
of the standard that becomes ISO property under 
the ISO copyright as I recall and given that the 
specification version is freely available, there 
is no impediment to companies or individuals who 
need the information without paying for it.

There was some discussion of this at XML DevCon in November. One of the
things mentioned was that, when negotiating the terms under which an
existing specification was taken into ISO, this was something that could
be taken into account. I can't remember what spec the speaker was
talking about, but he said that, after it had gone through the ISO
process, you could get the resulting spec free from his organization's
Web site or pay ISO for it.
