...unless its  a walled garden.

You really do not plan to include ARML in "related standards".
ARML1 was discussed in a prior W3C AR workshop.
ARML2 is going through the OGC process for adoption as an OGC standard.
The OGC process requires at least two or more commitments to implementation.

To not consider ARML2 in W3C seems to be a blind spot.
