Current draft text:

One of the benefits that XML touted from early in it's inception was that of platform independence. This independence greatly helped in its widespread adoption, yet brought with it the unintended consequence of a proliferation of standardized XML grammars. Document standards such as DITA (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/dita), DocBook http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/docbook), and ODF (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/office) all address a similar need to mark up documentation in a platform-independent format. Increasingly, organizations need to collaborate and share content with other organizations. As a result, XML interoperability between these standards is critical. These standards, however, have not been designed with cross-standard interoperability in mind.The Doc Standards Interoperability TC is intended to address the development and documentation of scenarios for cross-standard content sharing; a specification for an interoperability framework, including mappings from participating standard formats to the framework; and requirements on participating standards to improve interoperability.
