Thanks for pointing this out. As it happens, I've recently (with support 
also from Antoine Isaac) approached NISO to request that they find a 
place for the service on their server, as part of the official website 
for ISO 25964. They responded very promptly and I believe are willing, 
but unfortunately they are in the middle of moving all their stuff to a 
new website. So there will be a delay of a few weeks.

Sorry about that. I'll inform the list when we have clear news.
