You are correct - they are not available between reviews.   They are sent
out to the public on each review.

Yes you are right. I mean that the docs are not published in a free form
like w3c specifications.
Btw, working draft are free but these are not shared a lot outside working
groups (e.g. Could be sent to external experts for review).

    Oggetto:  RE Public standards.
      RE Documents and costs
    
    The ISO standards are public as much as any books.  Books aren't free
but
    they are public.  Standards are sold and that is how they pay for the
costs
    of producing them -- though some standards groups are moving to make
them
    available free of charge on the Internet. 
    
    There is one time when the documents are free.  When they are up for
review
    as drafts there is no charge.
