OGC is "doing a great job in certain areas defining standard protocols by
which an applications can talk to a map server to serve up maps. 
OGC went down a path of protocols and interfaces. The philosophy is

seek the union of all business needs, it is the intersection of them. I
think that is the only way to go. You have to define the problem as the
intersection, and then you have a chance of solving it."
