To deposit spec drafts in a

would also threaten the openness and accountability of the process.
I think OASIS needs to balance openness with usability. My TC (ebxml-msg) uses a subversion repository on my personal server for collaboration on our docbook-based specification. There is a link in Kavi to a web interface to this repository.
If OASIS wants to prohibit me from doing this, it had better provide me with a subversion, CVS or perforce repository to work with. Kavi is not a good development tool. I'm more than happy to use OASIS tools if they meet my needs.
