Why do you think so. OASIS TCs operate in the public. ODF specification 
drafts are publicly available available long before the the 
specifications get a standard. I therefore see no reason why the OIIC TC 
could not use them as basis for its work.

I'm not sure, but my impression is that you are assuming that the OIIC 
TC is conducting its business based on the ODF TC deliverables, but 
without any collaboration with that TC. Being one of the ODF TC chairs, 
I have to say that I think it would be a pity if that happens.
