ISSUE-33 (OMB-A119): add reference to OMB-A119 circular to role of standards in interop section [Interoperability]

http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/IG/track/issues/33

Raised by: Owen Ambur
On product: Interoperability

In the section on the role of standards --
http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/IG/Group/docs/note#interop.what.standards -- it
may be appropriate to cite OMB Circular A-119, which provides guidance to
U.S. federal agencies with respect to "Federal Participation in the
Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity
Assessment Activities": 
http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/circulars/a119/a119.html 

Perhaps this paragraph could be quoted or paraphrased:

"Agencies must consult with voluntary consensus standards bodies, both
domestic and international, and must participate with such bodies in the
development of voluntary consensus standards when consultation and
participation is in the public interest and is compatible with their
missions, authorities, priorities, and budget resources."
