Kevin,

Since nobody said a word yet, my two cents.

I would recommend an article co-authored by Trond that gives a good  
overview of the issue:
http://www.epractice.eu/en/document/287920

I guess you've also seen the previous message. Pointers sent by  
Vassilios and Trond also hold interesting information:

Let me be a bit controversial.
One "easy" question you may try to answer wrt the text below  
"..interoperability requires standardization..." (really?)
I argue that if A and B agree on exchanging information using a  
proprietary, non-standardized format Z, they can interoperate, so why  
A and B should invest on using open standards to achieve the same  
result? ;)

tip: some sections of the first pointer address the question.

I can put it another way, maybe easier question. Can you envision  
Data.gov not using open standards? Why not?

-- Jose

ps: hope this helps somehow, it's getting late here and it's been a  
long day...
