Subject: Clarification of 3 implementations requirement

Here is a snip from the TC guidelines for the 3 implementation requirement prior to submission of a TC approved spec to OASIS membership for voting:

"Certification by at least three OASIS member organizations that they are successfully using the specification. (Despite numerous requests, the OASIS TC Administrator feels it is not in the TC's best interests to further define the meaning of "successfully using". The implementation could really be anything from prototypes or proof of concept all the way up to shrink-wrapped software. Defining this further would only restrict the definition and make it harder for member organizations to say that they are successfully using the specification.) This certification can be in the form of a simple statement in email from a company representative, e.g. "I certify that XYZ company is successfully using...." The implementers must also certify that their implementations comply with known IP encumbrances."  

See http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/guidelines.php#spec_standard for the full requirements.
