SHOULDN'T there be some stage between "We've demonstrated that people on the WG can implement the spec" and "We've seen that independent developers can implement the spec solely from the information it contains, and those independently developed versions are interoperable".  Maybe the latter is the job of ISO to define as an International Standard?  I don't know.
