There is a constant tension in development between doing less, but doing it well, verses doing more with less attention to detail. As OGC standards are addressing start addressing more complex issues, and and move toward the mass market, the OGC should put greater funding priorities on addressing quality over quantity.

To date, the funding structures to build OGC testbeds have been very successful, but only address the first part of the standards development life-cycle. The OGC, and OGC sponsors should work out how to re-prioritise funding such that funding structures ensure that a standard is developed right through to the development of the artifacts associated with quality.

This means:
  • Quality technical writing and review.
  • Examples to support implement-ability
  • Consistent, concise one page marketing overviews
  • Implementations
  • Comprehensive test suites, which cover all edge conditions
